[VIDEO] Nalle Hukkataival bouldering in Penoles, Mexico

Black Diamond athlete Nalle Hukkataival decided to leave behind the bureaucracy of bouldering in Hueco Tanks State Historical Park in Texas and crossed the border into Mexico. Destination: Penoles, a bouldering area seven hours south of the U.S. border with rock striking similar to Hueco's but without the onerous rules and regulations. Nalle quickly realized what he had heard of Penoles was true: the place was virtually untapped, especially in regards to difficult highballs, and quickly set to work at developing a host of high-end, world-class problems.
