Description

This route was installed thanks to the Arthur's Rock Fixed Anchor Initiative (2013).
Please consult the Lory State Park Rock Climbing guide for more information:
http://nococlimbing.org/portfolio/arthurs-rock-bouldering-guide/

Another fun entry level sport climb, it starts with a short, right-facing corner (crux) then continues up the pillar between two black grooves. This route is easily set as a toprope by walking around left to the top of the climb.

It has interesting and fun moderate climbing on knobs. Some people describe this route as a "giggler".

Location

To reach the South Face, hike up the ArthurÂ’s Rock Trail for about 45-60 minutes. After you pass the Childbirth and Valhalla Boulders, the South Face is in view and off the trail on climberÂ’s right. Blackish Blobs is located off on its own about 75 yards west from the main zone.

Protection

4 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor.

Really fun little climb with various starts.
(Plenty of room for a few more quality routes too)

Thanks, Ben! Dec 13, 2013

The first hanger was replaced on 11/1/13.
I put some Loctite on it this time so hopefully it stays put.

Enjoy!

The first bolt at the start is missing the hanger. Problem solved by making this a top rope climb. Very fun climb with a difficult start (5.8+/5.9-), and the rest of the climb similar to Monastary-like rock. Oct 7, 2013

This is a fun route! Be careful of loose rock on this one as it needs a little more traffic to clean up. When at the second to last bolt, move slightly to the right into a dish to avoid friable rock to the left. May 2, 2013
