Description 

Another formidable looking spire amidst a sea of cliffs, Lost Arrow Spire requires a longer than normal approach and therefore sees less traffic. The routes on this tower are on the north and the southwest, and include the 2 classics, Dying for Exposure and Lost Arrow AKA Classic Route. Only 2 of the 7 routes are sport and 1 of the routes is an aid line.

Getting There 

Park at the Flaming Rock Trailhead, and hike north on the trail passing both South Creek and Center Creek. Just after Center creek the trail emaciates and cairns become visible. Follow these to the spire.

Lost Arrow 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b ID : City of Rocks : Lost Arrow Spire
AKA: Classic Route. Pitch 1: Start on the north face of Lost Arrow Spire on a flake traverse that reaches a vertical crack with the original Lowe piton in it. Clip it, enjoy the nostalgia, and stem or jam your way on up. After the crack ends, clip the bolt and work through the highly pocketed face to the exciting and well protected hand traverse. The crux seems to be the tail end of this traverse. Attain the ledge and belay. Pitch 2: works left off the ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
