The Ozarks of Arkansas are slowly beginning to produce climbing bluffs that are coming into their own as some of the best and most accessible climbing areas located between the Rockies and the Appalachians. While it's primarily the Northwest that garners the reputation, the Atoka Sandstone formations in the East near the White River have their own bolts, routes and bluffs to share.
Enter Jamestown Crag. Just South of Batesville is over 130 sport routes eroded in the sandstone, on top of 20 boulder problems and growing. Primarily low to moderately graded routes with a handful of difficult classics for the area, the crag is an excellent destination for climbers located in the East side of the state, all the way to Southern Missouri, or Eastern Tennessee.
