Description

A collection of moderate trad lines, often with inconspicuous pro in horizontal cracks. There are no bolted anchors, but there are some convenient rappel trees.

EDIT: Most of these routes have been retrobolted and anchors have been added.

Getting There

When you approach the cliff line, this is the first wall on the left.

As of 1/31, a bunch of the lines on this wall have been bolted. Most of these routes took gear fairly well, so it seemed a little ridiculous to grid bolt here. Feb 1, 2016

That is lame. Bolting established trad lines is bad form. If someone wants to chop them, I would support it. I haven't been to Stack Rock for a while. Feb 1, 2016

Relax. The bolting was done by one of the biggest contributors to Arkansas climbing that exists, and the overall consensus from the community is leave them be. No need for a bunch of pot stirring. Aug 23, 2017

Interesting. How did you conduct this consensus? Aug 23, 2017

One of the best beginner climbing areas I know of in the US, especially for those getting into trad climbing! Both splitter cracks and face climbs are protected well with gear! I agree with Creed on the ethics here though...for the most part. While this place needs to see more traffic to clean the routes from moss, dirt, etc., it really doesn’t need to turn into Horseshoe Canyon Ranch by bolting G/PG face trad. I don’t want it to be like a climbing gym. I like the addition of bolted top anchors though (on the routes that have them). Jan 21, 2018
