Description Suggest change

This is the collection of crags that are within an hours drive reach to the Fayetteville/NWA hub. WOO PIG

Lake LincolnThe quintessential local crag for anybody living in Northwest Arkansas. Only about a 20-30 minute drive from town, this crag offers some quick and easy access to some short routes. This area is by no means a destination, but a worthwhile visit for a local climber or visiting party if they're itching to get on some local rock. Lake Lincoln is arguably a better bouldering destination that offers a large array of boulders for anyone to tick. Routes not to miss are "Mad Max", "Quest for the sticky stuff" & "PJ"


Shepherd SpringsPerhaps the most quality local crag  in the region. It doesn't quite receive the attention it deserves and likely due to the fact that it is a little more of a commitment in distance in comparison to most local crags. The climbing here can at times be dirty and a little un-kept, however there are a few gems worth venturing for. Classics include "Stump Route", "Biscuits and Jam"

Bigfoot HollowThe regions newest addition of development. Loads of quality boulders tucked into the woodline and all within a 45 minute drive from town. Still lots of opportunity to add to the mix out here.

Area 74: Classic roadside bouldering wall that features some staple problems for the state. A perfect crag for those winter days where you're limited on time and commitment to travel into the deep ozarks.
