Weekend trip in near future. Leave on a Thurs evening and get back later on Sunday.

I do not own my own car and would like to get out to Arkansas sometime before mid-February (my job picks up in the Spring and it is nearly impossible to get time off then). I have a climbing partner that is interested, but she as well cannot take her car. Two teams of 2 would be ideal.

So if you yourself were thinking about getting out on some awesome AR climbs soon and wanted a way to alleviate the gas cost, please let me know!

Happy climbing!

Just curious- if you're driving all the way to Arkansas, why are you picking Jamestown? It would be fourth or fifth on my list of crags to visit.

Solid question, and my answer really isn't that convincing. I have not climbed in Arkansas and this trip is inspired by an email from the Access Fund that listed Jamestown as a crag they funded in 2013.

Whenever I leave the city I try to go to places that are the "roads less traveled." This why I didn't first go for the more popular areas in AR. Although I enjoy meeting other climbers, the real climbing experience for me is to be away from the hustle and bustle at a popular crag on a sunny, cool day.

But again, if this assumption is completely wrong of these popular areas (Sam's Throne looks fun as well) or there are better spots to go to please name some of your personal favorites! I just looked at some of the climbs, reviews, and photos of Jamestown and thought, 'why not?'

Jamestown is actually a very well established crag, much more so than stack rock or cave creek. It was previously on a logging companies property that allowed climbers access, but was purchased by a local group of outdoor enthusiasts, with the help of the access fund, last year. So Jamestown crag is just as established, if not more so, than most places in Arkansas.
