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.
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.
