Mixed climbing on south facing sandstone.

In the old guide, this was Area B.

Getting There 

Take the west walkdown, described in Hidden Walls, turning left (east) at the bottom instead of right (west). This area starts immediately and continues to a large cave with a chimney and offwidth system. The cave goes back a bit, check it out.

Climb up to the bolt using the fingercrack in the dihedral and holds on the arete. After the bolt, move right a little to pull the bulge. Above, angle up and left to the anchors.This is an awesome route with great gear, though placing it at the bulge may be strenuous. Some just run it out a little to get to the lower angled wall above....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arkansas
