Description

This area has about 15 prominent routes. 5.9 to 5.12d bolted, with some easy trad (5.7 or lower). Most routes are forty feet or less. All of the sport routes are overhanging. Many of the starts to the routes are easier boulder problems on their own. There is also plenty of bouldering, including a cave.

Getting There

Only about a half-hour drive from downtown Little Rock:
From I-430, take the Cantrell/Pinnacle Mountain State Park exit. Head WEST on Cantrell. After ~8 miles, take a left on Chenal Parkway. After about a half-mile, near the top of the big hill (you'll see a big church up ahead to your left), turn right onto Chenal Valley Drive. Then after driving a 1000 feet or so, take another right on to an older looking road (Gordon Rd). Head up the hill and park under the power lines. The climbing area is a 10 minute walk up the hill.

Alternate directions: from I-630 head west on Chenal parkway. Follow for 4-5 miles take left onto the second Chenal Valley Drive, just past the Episcopal Church at the top of the hill. Then take a right onto Gordon rd. Follow up hill till you see crag on right. Park under the power wires. Follow dirt road up till trail on the right.

ACCESS ISSUE. Chenal Mountain is private property. Expect to be ticketed if you park and climb there. The Arkansas Climbers Coalition is working on gaining legal access to this area. Please obey the posted "No Trespassing" signs and don't jeopardize our chances to open this crag to everyone. May 12, 2012

This is private land? What happened to get it shut down? Oct 29, 2017
Just an update since this area seems rarely climbed. Parking is under the powerlines, on a variety of rough 4x4 trails. I didn't see any sort of signs posted. I didn't find a walking path to the climb area. So scramble uphill through the woods a few hundred yards, and either around to the right of the peak, or over the top until you find the cliff and see the shuts. The bolts seem solid, with a little surface rust. It's a neat little area, you can probably climb all the routes in 2-3 hrs. They are all on the same face in view of each other. Sep 18, 2018
