Description 

On Overlook drive there is a pull out for parking. There is a trail about 50 feet long that leads to a scenic viewpoint where you can see the opposing cliffs on the other side of the valley. If you walk out to the edge of the cliff there is a tree and a large rock you can horn to make an anchor for rappelling over the larger part of bluff. The top area is separated by a series of chimneys that can be pretty fun and safe to mess around in. The rock type is sandstone like the rest of the park and has lots of horizontal/stack like formations. most of the rock is pretty loose and can break off if weighted so be cautious. Bring a HELMET if you plan on doing anything around this place!

Getting There

Wondering Chimney Route 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  Arkansas : Mount Magazine State Park : Cameron Bluff Overlook
This can be done in both 1 or 2 pitches. We climbed the route in two pitches due to the wondering nature and awful rope drag. The route is shaded by the trees and doesn't receive much sunshine in the later parts of the day so bring a jacket for belay or you will be cold. The technical crux of the route is the end of the first pitch where you can either make a 5.9 move over a bugle with poor gear or go the right of the bugle and do an easy chimney. The real crux of the route however is the amount...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arkansas
