Candy Mountain Rock Climbing
An extension of Cave Creek. Candy Mountain offers secluded, tall, high quality climbs in the Natural State.
One of the best crags by far!
Turn onto an old logging road before Cave Creek.(Left if driving south). Follow the trail and manmade latter down to the base of the crag.
Or take the long/scenic approach and follow the Cave Creek cliffline until you see bolts.

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....[more] Browse More Classics in Arkansas

Pull off and park BY THE ROAD. Hike on foot down the old lumber truck path; if you try to take your car, unless it is a tank, you'll just run into fallen trees and a lot of choss. The lumber road diverges slightly to the right and turns into a foot path down to the crumbly log-ladder. Then follow cairns to the right.

This is a beautiful, tall, and underutilized crag. Wish I was stronger! the route on the cover of the climbing arakansas guidebook is a route called Achilles heel at this crag!

I can't believe there aren't lines at this place. It doesn't get much better than camping at Sam's then climbing here. There are some boulders in the valley below that look like they have potential too.
