About Sams Throne:

Sams Throne is located about 50 miles north of Russellville, AR and offers a wide variety of climbing experiences from 5.5 toproping to hard sport and trad climbing (There also happens to be a 5.12D TOPROPE problem!). Very user friendly especially for the begginer, toprope anchors can be found on nearly every route. The Sam's Throne Area, located in the valleys surrounding Mt. Judea, is a little overgrown. Moss and lichen, as well as dirt, bugs, and vines clog a majority of the routes. But, this is climbing in Arkansas (Mt. Magazine Excepted). Also in the Sam's Throne area are: Valley of the Blind/Deliverance, Cave Creek, and Rickett Mountain.
Nearest town or city: Mt. Judea
Directions: Sam's Throne is on Hwy-123 between Lurton and Mt Judea (pronounced Mt Judy) and the main parking area is clearly marked by a nice new wooden Forest Service sign. UPDATE: As of 26 May 06 the construction was over. The new parking lot and access road is completed.
