Starting the great but grimy hand crack of Cosmic ...
Start up the handish corner crack until you gain a ledge with a tree. This is where you test your luck. Begin up the offwidth, smearing and stemming while placing pro in the disappearing, increasingly mossy (seasonal) crack. After the nut check, get good pro in and continue into the belly of the beast. Place your larger pieces up high, then ride through the glorious finish.
If it wasn't so dirty, it would get my vote for the best offwidth in Arkansas.

1 set of nuts, singles of all cams up to #6 BD

This route is awesome, everything an aspiring southern trad climber should seek out! The thin hand crack above the first ledge is dirty, but good fun and only the start of your human chimney sweeping experience.. a double rack of bd .4-#3 and singles of 5 and 6 are probably enough for most.
One word of caution, the top portion of this route tends to pull the rope into the crack while both climbing and lowering, I wonder if the first ascensionist would be terribly upset if a bolt was added towards the top to keep it out of the crack?
