Horseshoe Canyon RanchAR Buffalo National River, USA
Climbs 369 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 636m a.s.l – Faces all
Best known as a sports climbing venue, there are some trad routes on natural crack systems, there are also several quality bouldering areas.
The climbing is well bolted on hard juggy sandstone, there is a good range of styles of climbing, from cracks & slabs to very steep overhanging walls most of the climbs are approx 60ft to 80ft.
The venue as it suggests is in the shape of a horseshoe with the open end roughly facing south, therefore you can get sun or shade in different areas through the day.
This is a very popular climbing area & gets crowded on a weekend.
