Per garrett knorr: The South face of Arthur's Rock is currently CLOSED for raptor nesting as of 4/7/17.
Per Rodney Ley 1: as of 21 May 2016, there is a Prairie Falcon (possibly Peregrine) nest with eggs at the top of this route (Sunday Morning Coming Down) area. The Lory State Park staff have placed a "Trail Closed" sign near the approach, but they don't mention it is for raptor protection.
Please avoid until mid-summer, perhaps the park staff will remove the sign when the birds have moved on.
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/…
To reach the belay, climb the first pitch of Right of Passage or Front Gate. Start by climbing a shallow, left-facing corner to a small roof. A technical crux after an obvious jug leads to the anchor.
To reach the South Face, hike up the Arthurs 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 climbers right.
