|the approach from the trail can be hard to find especially in spring if things are growing. Plan on a two hour approach at least, not very fun. The arrowhead point route itself is not good enough to warrant the trudge up there, but if you do the arowhead arete as well, I think it is well worth it. The arrowhead arete may only be 5.8 , not 5.9 . The arrowhead point is only 5.6 .|

It's possible to top out and get to the yosemite falls trail
The way is pretty obvious with some 4th class and lots of bushwhacking,
at least not worse than the aproach and the descent described in the supertaco guidebook plus you have a nice view and a kind of a summit.

|This is an area page, somebody please add some climbs under this! I've done Arrowhead Arete but don't remember enough to add a useful description. We first climbed Arrowhead Pinnacle, and I'd recommend starting this way.|

Best done in the spring when the approach is more wet. Lots of 4th class sections that in the spring is far easier than in the fall when everything if dirty and covered in leaves. Much less slippery in the spring months.
The most "alpine" climb in the Valley. The topout isn't the end of it, the ridgeline to get back to the raps is heady. Really heady.
Takes a lot of route finding and commitment by both leader and follower.
Probably one of the best routes I've done in the Valley. Very committing to get there and get off but climbing it is just as committing.
