Description [Suggest Change]

An extension of Cave Creek. Candy Mountain offers secluded, tall, high quality climbs in the Natural State.
One of the best crags by far!

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Turn onto an old logging road before Cave Creek.(Left if driving south). Follow the trail and manmade latter down to the base of the crag.

Or take the long/scenic approach and follow the Cave Creek cliffline until you see bolts.

This place is rad Mar 8, 2014
This is a beautiful, tall, and underutilized crag. Wish I was stronger! the route on the cover of the climbing arakansas guidebook is a route called Achilles heel at this crag! Jan 26, 2015
I can't believe there aren't lines at this place. It doesn't get much better than camping at Sam's then climbing here. There are some boulders in the valley below that look like they have potential too. Apr 17, 2016
most people in arkansas drive tanks. army tanks. it's all choss Feb 21, 2017
