Arnold’s features very thin climbing, delicate balance, and improbable smearing on a steep section of the wall. The first bolt isn’t too far up but requires your attention to safely get there. Now the fun begins. Continue up the bolt line on sketchy flakes and careful footwork. Second or third bolt is the crux, but it’s all pretty sustained. After the sixth bolt, the route runs out over easy ground. One last headwall on thin holds takes you past two more bolts to a two bolt rap anchor, shared with Among the Stars. This climb should clean up well with more traffic.
This is the new line of bolts immediately to the left of Among the Stars.
8 bolts, bolted anchor.
In the thick of it.

This is .10b/c slab at its best [for RRCOS]. Nice and thin.
