Comments: Awesome climb!! For the anchor you can get a #3 BD behind the pole and a #2 and #1 in front of the pole also maybe a .75 in the front of the pole.. Pull it all together with a cord and you'll be set..

Comments: A lot of good points here. I feel that it is selfish to withhold info on such an easy accessible area and at the same time I can see how the young bouldering crews that are fresh out of the gym could ruin it, but that's the risk with any area. Establish an area then if it is worth it get the access fund to keep it open. The real candy of this area is the rope climbs but if people show up for that they will see the boulders and share the info and we will be back to square one.

Comments: I see that someone added a couple of bolts to this one, its a nice addition if you ask me. This is a solid route, it is horrible that the area gets spray paint...

Comments: Yes it does, but with no trail to get there (the best way is to follow the fence and then cut over to the face) hopefully the quarry wont rip down that entire hillside!

Comments: No, I dont have my guidebook but its listed in there(rock climbing arkansas by Cole Fennel. I always climb the money, whole 80ft in one pitch!!!

Also, since the hanging chain/draws were installed FOA feels much more like a 5.11a to me. Its better to clip your own draws, plus chains and hanging draws takes away from the rocks natural beauty!

I think it goes 5.11c trad, 5.11b sportdraws, 5.11a chains.. its sad, it keeps getting chopped down a grade .. lol

Comments: FOA is closer to 80" IF you take it to the top. The frist quarter of the climb is more of a face than a Slab. and the FA was done on trad before the bolts were put in!
