A little sunny, because it faces southeast. This area is also ok for TR, as a hike up is found in the gully to the left.

Getting There 

On the southeastern side of the Throne area, on the main bluffline, not the freestanding Throne Proper. These climbs center around the raised ledge under an overhanging crack and a ledge with a roof halfway up the wall.

From the split in the trail upon coming to the Throne, the fastest way here is left.

Climbing Season

For the The Throne area.

Climb up and left in the finger crack on a slab to the base of the roof. There, pull the roof in the off-finger crack, possibly using a face hold out right. At the horizontal hand crack, head up and left to join Patio Direct at the ledge. Finish on Patio Direct. Great rock.May feel 10+ if you're taller than 5'10"....[more]   Browse More Classics in AR
