OK, someone around here must have the answer to this one...

Go to MapQuest, Google Maps, etc.

East of El Paso, just south of Highway 180 and South-East of Hueco Tanks State Park, there's a cluster of what appears to be residential streets. Among the streets you'll find Todd Skinner Drive, Beth Wald Street, Steve Petro Drive, Lynn Hill Street, Hugh Herr Court, etc.

If you were alive & climbing in the 80's than you know who these people are.

How in the world did streets get named after them, and who was behind it? I'm sure dying to know.
