This route was installed thanks to the Arthur's Rock Fixed Anchor Initiative (2014).

Please consult the Lory State Park Rock Climbing guide for more information:

This is a tricky, little, short sport route with good rock and interesting movement. The crux comes right off the bat above the first bolt using opposing sidepull features. The next two bolts involve technical climbing on good edges to an easy slab.


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. From the base of the cliff, walk back East to reach Goldeneye.


3 bolts and a 2-bolt chain anchor.

So short, so hard, definitely interested in others feedback on this one if you're under 6' and have a short wingspan.

Great little face climb! Just climbed it today. I'm about 5'7", and it's not reachy with the right type of mantle style footwork. Probably 11c/d.

I got on this yesterday, and it definitely was trickier than I expected. Sharp, small holds and a bit cryptic. I was straight up stumped at the third bolt - I couldn't find any holds to pull myself up to the slab on. I am about 5'10".

Would agree on the 11d. Quite thin, balancy, and fun for such a short climb.

I'm 5'8"ish, and this is not harder than 11b. It consist of a single V2 crux at the third bolt. I whipped on my on-sight attempt, but once I was familiarized with the holds, it was chill city. Fun route! Great warm-up for the climbs uphill.
