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: nococlimbing.org/portfolio/…

This route climbs the undulating orange and green face between Doom Corner and The Great Corner. Start up an easy slab into technical terrain and the crux around bolts 4 and 5. Climb a short, right-facing corner that pulls a small roof, then continue up moderate but heads-up terrain to the anchor. A 70m ROPE is MANDATORY TO LOWER.

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 and Rocksie Rocks is in view and off the trail on climberÂ’s right.

Protection

10 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor.

Would the flake on the left be worth doing? It didn't look too tough but looked like it would be worth a shot. Mar 12, 2013

We re-climbed and upgraded this route on 4/25/15.

A few holds in the crux broke, and that increased the difficulty by quite a bit. Maybe we sandbagged it from the beginning? Who knows? Apr 28, 2015

Climbed this on 4/6/16. I broke a lot of holds and broke off another hold in the crux (still goes). The route is actually pretty clean now and is worth a lap. I thought this climb was easier than Owl Roof but more mentally engaging. Apr 6, 2016
