The National Forest Service is currently conducting a Heritage Site Review at Hudson Mountain and the Invasion Wall climbing areas near Cowell, AR during the month of August. The FS is asking that climbers, hikers, and all other users avoid these areas during the review process. Please respect the USFS request and pass the word on to other climbers.

Sorry, no news from the USFS as of today. All we can do is wait until they finish the survey. If we jump the gun, they might close that entire area permanently.

Terry Hope with the USFS is going to contact the Arkansas Climbers Coalition about the review process. Needless to say, it is a government operation and they will take their time. Call Logan at LR Climbing Center to get more info. To be on the safe side, avoid climbing there until they get this settled.

Sorry for the bad news, but the USFS has not responded back when they told us they would(typical)...Personally, I say go ahead and climb there, but take care and not disturb any rock art and practice LNT. If approached, play dumb and use your best ranger manners. Wink
