Description 

D Rock is fairly different from most crags in the Natural State. It's located in Russellville, south of I-40. There aren't a whole lot of lines here, but most of the ones present are great. The crag is known for it's plethora of hard sport routes- almost everything is 5.11 or harder (with a ton of good 5.12s.) It's also unique in the way that almost every sport line has fixed draws. That and the graffiti and the <5 minute approach for almost all of the lines mean that this almost feels more like a gym than a true Arkansas crag. That being said, if you want hard sport, don't miss this area.

The rock is still sandstone, but it's a different feel than most of the stuff up in Newton County- it's harder and more angular. Also, it feels like the holds are always facing the wrong way, which makes climbing here much more interesting.

Getting There 

This area is super easy to get to- from I-40, get off at Highway 7 south in Russellville. Stay on this until you cross the Arkansas River into Dardanelle, and then hang a right on 2nd Street. Follow this to a right on Dardanelle Dam Rd (the sign just says Dam Rd) and D Rock should be hard to miss- park in the pull off across from the sign.
