Description 

A crag that composes of a few moderates and one wall of good stout 5.12's


Rock is rather unique for the state as lines follow cool features.

Recieves sun all day, which makes best for a winter crag.
Not steep enough to avoid rain.

Getting There 

From the Parking, walk down rutted roads that wind downhill until you can spot the hard to find trailhead (which is now extremely faint)
Walk 2 minutes down a gulley until you hit a creek that flows down a steep bed of rock.

Used the fixed line to descend into the crag.


(The directions listed here are different than the guidebook as the road to access the crag has changed significantly in condition.

It is best to use the accurate lattitude and longitude provided here and self interpret the best way for you to get down)

Climbing Season

Black Lightning 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  AR : McCracken
The first obvious black streak as you walk into the crag. Carefully climb up some easy but dangerous terrain to get the first bolt clipped, then pull up the ledge on some questionable pockets.From here find some holds to get your body mounted onto the face and cruise up the big holds to the top.Tends to be a bit dirty after rains....[more]   Browse More Classics in AR
