Access Issue: Fragile Sandstone: Don't Climb Wet Rock Details
Kelly Canyon is a sandstone climbing area and the rock is very fragile when wet. Be aware of recent weather and ask a local if you are unsure of conditions. Do not climb for at least a day following rainfall. Do not climb on rock that is visibly moist or seeping.
Two cliffs across the canyon from the Warm Up Wall. The Arkansas Wall is the left cliff, overhanging and dirty on the left side and roughly vertical but cleaner on the right. There are about half a dozen lines, including a classic technical arete and some freaky highballs. The Traverse Wall is steep, with a powerful left-right sloper traverse.
