Description

A rarity! A hard slab climb in Arkansas. The rock is bomber, the bolts are well spaced, and all the clips are made from good holds.

For shorter people, this route will have two cruxes: first above the 2nd bolt and again after the 4th or 5th bolt. Tall people (over 6 ft) can bypass the first crux by reaching to a jug, but they will have to figure our the delicate second crux.

Location

Past the seasonal water fall, past the Gracious Grant area. This is the large gray slab in the center of a rock corridor.

Protection

6 lead bolts, two fat rap bolts for the anchor (on a small ledge below the roof)

Bring a long sling (at least 240cm) if you plan to set up a TR after leading. The anchors are far back on the ledge. Dec 23, 2016

Would definitely advise a stick clip on this one, due to a very delicate start. Nov 28, 2017
