Hunting for Mushrooms 5.8


Follow the easiest way up to a right-facing dihedral. Good juggy climbing with horizontal cracks for gear. This is the easiest route to the top of the pillar.


East face of Slackline Pillar.


Standard gear, 2-bolt anchor with webbing/cord.

Anchor status as of 5/6/12: removed faded blue/white cord, red/blue cord looked good/recent so we left it. Added new cord (dark blue/light blue) and tied together as one anchor.

Cord is starting to look a little weathered as of June 27th, wish we had brought some. Threw a brand new mallion on it for you guys. Bring some new cord or webbing to be safe. Make sure you're proficient with TCU's before you lead it. The hard moves are in the start and there's not much for nut placements. Posted a video on my facebook if you'd like some beta, Beautiful top out. Maybe the best in Arkansas. Enjoy!

We were trying to find Mushroom Jazz and found this. It felt about 5.8. Fun route.

The bolts in the anchor are super uneven -- one is down on the face and one is on top of the pillar. The top bolt needs some webbing and a rap ring so you can rap off. I didn't have it or I would have set it up.
