This route is very beautiful and much easier than it appears. In some ways, it reminds me of a more moderate version of For Whom the Bell Tolls at Haw Creek. Cackling Hens looks like a genuine crack climb, but an abundance of face holds and good stances make it accessible to the average Arkansas face climber. The crux is at the first roof.


Right of Hidden Treasure. Look for an obvious right leaning crack under an impressive tiered roof system.


Standard Rack. Might bring a few extra red and green Camelots if you have them. Bolted anchor with chains.

While an aesthetically appealing line, the 20 ft runout through the roof is annoying, and good luck slinging anything and keeping it in place. Calling the tree anchor "inconvenient" is an understatement as both your slings and rope will be hopelessly engulfed in green briar sadness. Oct 19, 2015

Intimidating route from the ground but is super casual once you get on it. There is no way this is a 5.8+ though. If Hudson Crack is a 5.8, this route is more like a 5.7. Pulling the crux is really stable as you are on massive jugs. Dec 4, 2017
