Very thin protection at the crux. Best protection is a cool hand and good technique. Just keep mov

Description:

Obvious 80 foot tall overhung face just to the right of the ramp. Climb up the thin dihedral for thirty feet. Continue up on positive edges on the face above. Aim for the small cave close to the top with a crack coming out of the top. This route is one of the best routes in Arkansas, especially for those really ballsy hard grit leaders.

4 out of 5 stars Windy Armbuster

At night on pre-placed gear (Scott placed it on rappel). Really nice climbing, but I think you would only get the full 5.10d experience placing the gear on lead.

1 out of 5 stars Nothing special

So I was told this is such a mega classic climb, didn't seem worth the time to me. Nothing stunning about the rock, just steep and pumpy. Wouldn't do it again.

Hung a couple times on the first go, then fired through the whole thing with most of the gear already clipped, so I think those combine to a clean ascent...
