Fun and can be pumpy. Try not to underestimate this route based on its current (i.e., from date of comments), rating of 5.9. If you make this route your first climb of the day (with or without the benefit of cheater stones), going for and clipping this route's fifth bolt hanger may prove to be a physical and/or welcome mental challenge.

Love this route! I had never visited Magoo rock until 24HHH and some folks were kind enough to let us get on this one before our hour was up. It's great, overhanging, pumpy, but excellent feet/hands throughout. There is a great hold for every clip.

The start is harder than 5.9. This is a very good route.

Don't miss this one. It's every bit a 5.9+ but it's not harder. The holds are huge. Hanging start might require a heel hook, so either stickclip it or have a crash pad

It would really be helpful for people on rock climbing road trips if there are better directions... If you are say from Arizona and want to climb in Arkansas it would help to have a city mentioned with some roads....

Really loved this climb. The start is a little harder then a 5.9 imo, basically a campus (though others mention a heel hook) so definitely suggest stick clipping. I think this was one of my more favorite routes at the ranch.

First real outdoor sport climb. The view is pretty rad. Also, if you're into the devils lettuce there is a rock near the bottom with some holes drilled into it. Made for a fun day at Magoo.
