This area contains a mix of many types and difficulties of climbing on good rock.

Getting There 

From the Chickenhead Wall, hike right, as seen from below. This area begins after hiking around a large finger of rock with a narrow, cave running about 50 feet in. It's a chimney, too.

Or, come from the Catacomb Walkdown, which is 400 yards east of the Chickenhead Wall. Hike 30 feet down a jumble of rock and into the short chimney. Exit to the left, as seen from below. This is the far right end of the Reality Wall.

Climbing Season

For the East Main Bluff area.

I stared at this face for ten years, stopping in amazement one of my first trips down. "Wow!" I thought, "will it ever go?" The more I climbed at Sams Throne, the more I learned what gear would, and wouldn't work, and what it took to do routes ground up in an area where cracks dead ended disappointingly, and finicky seams sometimes gave protection, but oftentimes, not. The obvious blank green face is practically hold-less, but my eyes traced the most possible looking line; up the...[more]   Browse More Classics in AR
