About Spy Rock:

Spy Rock is another Arkansas climbing area that seems to have slipped into oblivion.

With the help of Jerry Cagle (now living in Arizona) and other early Arkansas climbers, I have begun to assemble some info on this area. This is a Trad or TR area. The USGS Topo for this area is "CASS". More historical info and pictures to come...

Redding Campground is the nearest established camping area. Since you'll be in the Ozark National Forest, camping is permitted anywhere NOT within 200ft. of a water source. Please practice "Leave No Trace" ethics to conserve this beautiful Arkansas feature.

Nearest town or city: Redding
Directions: From Fayetteville: Take Hwy 16 EAST to Brashears. From there, take Hwy 23 SOUTH for about 6 miles. Take a LEFT on Forest Road 1003. If you reach Cass, you've missed your turn. Take FR 1003 EAST until you get to the town of Redding. From Redding, turn LEFT (NORTH) on County Road 81. About 2 miles further, just after the road curves back north, Spy Rock is on your left. A short approach leads to the climbs.
