A collection of moderate trad lines, often with inconspicuous pro in horizontal cracks. There are no bolted anchors, but there are some convenient rappel trees.

Getting There 

When you approach the cliff line, this is the first wall on the left.

As of 1/31, a bunch of the lines on this wall have been bolted. Most of these routes took gear fairly well, so it seemed a little ridiculous to grid bolt here.

That is lame. Bolting established trad lines is bad form. If someone wants to chop them, I would support it. I haven't been to Stack Rock for a while.

Relax. The bolting was done by one of the biggest contributors to Arkansas climbing that exists, and the overall consensus from the community is leave them be. No need for a bunch of pot stirring.

Interesting. How did you conduct this consensus?
