Sam's Throne offers a variety of climbing. Mostly, though, it is a bastion of trad climbing, with a few sport routes thrown in on unprotected faces. Toproping is also popular here, due to the easy access to the tops of most routes.
This area is just up the hill from Mt. Judea, AR. The best thing would be to Mapquest that city. If coming from the north, once there, continue following AR-123 south, past a sharp left turn at a gas station. Take the next right, which is still 123. Follow it up about 4-5 miles. Sam's Throne will be on the right and is marked by a new wooden sign.

Climb the slightly steeper than vertical handcrack 15 feet to the ledge. From here, climb the offwidth dihedral as it widens slightly as you get higher. Pull around the right side of the triangular roof, continuing in the crack past a small tree. Go around the left side of the tree, if you aren't too sketched, to reduce rope drag. 5 more feet of face climbing gets you to the anchors. Awesome rock, awesome climb!...[more] Browse More Classics in AR
