Description

The Great Corner is the large, right-facing corner/chimney system up the South Face of Arthur's Rock.

Pitch 1: climb the wide crack/runnel system up and left to where it widens to a chimney. Belay at the 2-bolt anchor (1/2"x3" SS 5-piece anchor installed on 3/30/14) at the first obvious ledge/break.

Pitch 2: climb a tricky wide crack to easier terrain to the top.

Descent: most parties will lower from the P1 anchor (60m rope required). From the summit/end of P2, use the standard walk-off or use the Right of Passage rappels.

This route has obviously been done many times before, but the NCCC could never find any detailed info on it. If you know any history or have climbed the route before, please chime in.

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.

Protection

Standard rack plus a few wide pieces.
