Comments: Flaky Layers starts on the slab in the left side of the pic, using the big jagged flake

Comments: Looks like it had an independent bolt after the rack end before going to the anchor, but the hanger and nut are missing. Clip the last bolt on Frosted Flakes instead

Comments: Fun route! I led it all in one pitch, but it could be broken into two. The first pitch is 60ft up to the large roof in the left facing corner with the dead tree and would be a great beginner lead at 5.5-5.6. The 30ft second pitch climbs through the slabby dihedral above the left end of the roof felt about 5.8. I'm not sure where a well protected 5.6 option for the second pitch would go...

Comments: From what I've been told, P2 goes right/up the ramp then straight up, then moves back left to the anchor and is 5.10. P3 is an airy 5.7 that might clip the first bolt of Spaceballs, then is a hand traverse left, before continuing up to the anchor and has another bolt somewhere. Haven't yet climbed it myself...

Comments: According to long time locals, this is "Fools and Flies" and the "Unknown" route to the right is the actual "Rabbits on Acid"

Comments: According to Terry he hasn't actually finished this route. He also warned of a wobbly refridgerator sized death block near the top of the route

Comments: This "sport climbing guide" is really lacking - there needs to be an article explains what sport climbing even is, how to clip bolts properly on lead, how to set up TR once arriving at the anchor, and how to lead belay


Location: OK : Quartz Mountain : Atlantic : Field Direct (5.7 X)

Comments: Including the two bolts on Field of Opp, there are 4 bolts that can be clipped on this pitch. Gear can be placed before the first bolt, the use a runner on 2 and 3(shared with Field of Opp). Belay at the top of pitch 1 can be build using cams in the 3-5 range, maybe smaller. Finish on Field of Opp P2

Comments: For the belay, BD cams # 1, 2, and 3 can be used. 0.75 and 0.5 sizes can probably be used as well

Comments: To whoever stole the anchor biners off this route - please put them back. All anchor biner at Lost City / John's wall should be left up (that's why they're zip-tied on) so cleaning is easier after toproping on your own quickdraws. Don't take community hardware - thanks!

Comments: A new, better approach is to walk the road from the campground North and past a closed gate. There may be a rock stack on the left for Cosmic Cowboy, but keep going and eventually you'll find a trail on the left (lined with downed trees) that leads to a 2nd/3rd class gully down. Turn left (south) to get to the Satellite area and Cosmic Cowboy walls, or right (north) to a couple trad routes and new sport routes

Comments: One hard move that is harder than Art of Vogi, but much less pumpy. Still a nice long, fun problem!

Comments: This route has now been bolted into a sport route. 4 bolts to anchors I believe

Comments: A lot of these route descriptions are straight from Cole Fennel's Rock Climbing Arkansas guidebook. Did you get Cole's permission to use his words, Brett Roberts? Feel free to give description on where to find these routes, but don't plagiarize...

Comments: Not so much a one move wonder - hard 5.10 climbing down low and difficult moves leading up to the crux moves just below the anchor.

Comments: Choss? Ha. In the time I spent at Boat Rock, I didn't see any boulders that classify as choss. That is some quality granite

Comments: This isn't the same problem listed as "V2 mantle" on the Dr Topo. I've seen it on youtube as "Reachy Mantle" at V3 and would agree more with that rating

Comments: Going into Cowell, turn right on 1204B which is marked by a small, brown plastic marker and often a bra hanging in the tree above it. It's before the left turn on 1204C for Invasion. Great crag!

Comments: I just toproped this one, but I'd say it's more around 5.9-. Crack was fairly dirty, but it may clean up with time. Rock quality of the roof was surprisingly good (well, good enough). Mantling the ledge after pulling the roof was pretty fun. BETA: I used the crack as a sidepull on the way up to the roof and then used just one right hand jam to reach over the roof to the jug ledge and topout.

Comments: The original GPS coordinates are too far west down the road. The wall is closer to 36° 8'45.34"N 96° 9'8.87"W. We parked at the big paved pullout on the north side of the road. A steep hike straight uphill from the parking leads to some good looking bouldering on the left. Continue uphill to the cliffband. Walk the cliffband about 250 yards right to find Tulsa Reality
