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:

To reach the belay, climb the first pitch of Right of Passage or Front Gate. From the anchor, climb up and left on good edges, crimps and sidepulls. Climb a short slab to the final headwall/arête. The last move before the anchor is the crux of the entire route. This tricky/reachy move can be aided through, giving the route a (5.11a A0) rating.


To reach the South Face, hike up the Arthur’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 climber’s right.


9 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor.

What an amazing route, as previously stated, seriously awesome. 10+/11- climbing until the last move and probably the best exposure you can get at Arthur's. A must do.

Rad climb. My buddy I weren't sure what this route was when we got on it but loved it as soon as we did. Good exposure on small holds and a tough last move.

Definitely noted a couple loose nuts up there on 2 of the bolts by hand turning them. I didn't have a wrench, but I'll be bringing one with me next time I go up there.
