Chickenhead wall, as seen from the top of Poison I...


This is the low-angled slab with jugs all over behind the massive boulder. This is often used as a walkout area by confident climbers. This area also covers routes extending past the large cave and all the way to the Reality Wall.

Getting There 

The best way to approach the Chickenhead Wall is from above. At the entrance to the parking lot, go left and through the gate. At the end of the gravel drive, there is a circle drive. Find the trail heading in the same general direction as the road. It leads to a clearing where the East and West Main Bluffs converge.

The rap is located to the right, above the West Main Bluff. To access it, you have to drop down about 5 feet to a ledge where the bolts are located.

Once at the bottom, hike left around the corner and into the tunnel area between the Chickenhead Wall and the huge boulder.

Fantastic overhanging face climb up beautiful orange rock. The climbing is pump with a technical crux about 1/3 of the way up. It doesn't get much better than this. The movement and ascethitics of this climb are hard to come by. The best thing about it is that its "trad".One of the best routes in the State!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Arkansas
