This is a popular toproping area, as there is easy access to the top. There are numerous easier lines, so it is also a popular area for beginning leaders. The harder lines tend to be face climbs.

There is a mix of sun and shade, so all seasons can be good. The rock is also generally great.

Getting There 

This is the hill in the valley that is surrounded on all sides by steep walls. Either 1: take the Dog Walkdown on the West Main Bluff, following it to the Chickenhead Wall on the East Main Bluff or, 2: take the trail at the end of the driveway, heading to the Chickenhead Wall from above as described in the East Main Bluff description.

From the Chickenhead wall, take the trail heading towards the Throne in the valley.

If you are lucky enough to own the original Sams Throne guidebook, maybe you have seen or top-roped the line "Quantum Leap". I never did, because I thought it looked contrived and more effort than it was worth to set up the TR. In the fall of 07, under the encouragement of others, I lead this route and redirected the line to add more climbing, and bolted anchors for those still wanting to TR this dynamic and wild ride. It is the "Love Slave" of Sams- very similar to the route of that name at H...[more]   Browse More Classics in AR
