D Rock is fairly different from most crags in the Natural State. It's located in Russellville, south of I-40. There aren't a whole lot of lines here, but most of the ones present are great. The crag is known for it's plethora of hard sport routes- almost everything is 5.11 or harder (with a ton of good 5.12s.) It's also unique in the way that almost every sport line has fixed draws. That and the graffiti and the <5 minute approach for almost all of the lines mean that this almost feels more like a gym than a true Arkansas crag. That being said, if you want hard sport, don't miss this area.
This area is super easy to get to- from I-40, get off at Highway 7 south in Russellville. Stay on this until you cross the Arkansas River into Dardanelle, and then hang a right on 2nd Street. Follow this to a right on Dardanelle Dam Rd (the sign just says Dam Rd) and D Rock should be hard to miss- park in the pull off across from the sign.
