|After you pass Fern (the town) and AR-215 veers right, you will pass the Fern Assembly of God and then a tall A-frame house on the right side of the road. Just after that, the "unmarked dirt road" you will take on the right is the national forest road 1544. It is the first dirt road turn after you pass Hummingbird Rd on the right. Once you turn right onto it, you should see a brown post on the right side of the road with "1544" vertically in white numbers.|

Supplemental to Drew's directions from 2012:
This place is quite hard to find at night if you've never been here before. There is no cell service and therefore no GPS. Check out the pictures I added in the pictures section. The directions by Drew and on the fernclimbing website will make a lot more sense.
You can camp here! Check out fernclimbing.com for the deets.
Weather: The location makes this place hard to climb if it rained in the past couple days. Moss grows easily here due to a nearby water source. Check the forecast, be safe and may the Schwartz be with you.
