Here is the event video for the 21st Annual Hueco Rock Rodeo! It was a truly awesome event this year, held to benefit the Hueco Tanks State Historic Site, outside of El Paso, TX.

"For the past three years I have helped run the Hueco Rock Rodeo, and after each event I have had the privilege of saying it was the best Hueco Rock Rodeo yet. Once again the 21st Hueco Rock Rodeo gave me the opportunity to say it was the largest and most excellent rodeo to date. Without my predecessors, sponsors and volunteers it would be impossible. Thanks everyone especially 5.10, Adidas, the AAC and HTSHP. "
