Fairly sunny, the cliff practically faces south. Once you are on the rock you are exposed to the sun, below there are trees which almost always offer shade.

Areas from Left to Right:
Le Mur (Above Impériale)

Getting There 

Practically in the center of Mont king. Between amphitheatre and staircase, at an area where the rock is seep for 30 feet, followed by about 40 feet of slab and then a very steep 50 foot section.

The approach varies depending on where you enter the park, if you entered the park from the south east streets past the main entrance (chalet anne-pichet) the hike is about an easy 20-25 minutes. When you arrive there is a sign labelled "Imperiale".

This classic has a hard start in an awkward left facing dihedral. Climb up and over small roof. Now look for a flake on the right and climb that [easier but tricky gear] or climb the right facing corner above [variation 10b]. Finish easily in a hand crack to a bolted anchor. 100'The Arkenstone variation is done by climbing Arkentsone which is the massive traverse across the cliff through a wide horizontal crack. At the end of the traverse, you have to finish on the face that ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
