Description

Amazing secluded crag in the backwoods of Arkansas.

Hosts a gorgeous cliff-band which varies in height from 50-80ft of climbing

Being the newest sector of development for the State, Rock Creek is currently undergoing change by the week. The climbing here is unlike that of other crags in the state.

To be successful here and truly enjoy this crag one must be proficient in powerful steep climbing, as well as a repertoire of drop knees and kneebars.

That being said there are a few moderates spread across the crag, and potential for loads more in the region. With the potential for this area to rival that of HCR if given the effort.

If your hunting for quality lines and a secluded adventure deep within the Ozarks, Rock Creek will more than suit you well.

Getting There

From the city of Deer High School, follow the county dirt road (Parker Ridge Rd)south until you reach a fork near the Big Piney.

Veer right (away from the low-water bridge) and follow a rocky road for a short ways until you reach an obvious parking area/campsite.

MAKE SURE to leave parking space for other climbers. There is limited space to park a vehicle. If it seems too crowded, perhaps travel elsewhere, or drive across rock creek proper and find a suitable parking area further up. People live out here, and at no point should you be parked in their driveway entrance.

From here walk up the creek till you see a trail leading uphill.

From here you connect to a 4 wheeler trail which has cairns off to the left that will lead you up to the crag.
