BETA PHOTO: Route overview for Lost Arrow Spur.
Described as a right of passage for local area climbers by some guide books. This is an excellent climb through mixed terrain. A little slab work combined with overhanging bulges make this route excellent. It is very well protected (actually a little over bolted) so is a good moderate lead. The crux is moving through some thin face moves after the first bulge is surmounted.
After descending the gully going into Upper Fifth canyon head to your left. This is the second climb on this side of the cliff as you head in and starts up some broken blocks. First bolt isn't far off the ground.
9 bolts/anchor - anchor is set a little back from the top

One of the best pitches in the park... but definitely not a "rite of passage".

Great route, varied in nature. Well-bolted, so not really a scary lead and good for new leaders. Crux at chains (IMO) is a little steep (but not too bad) and there is two closely spaced bolts so not big fall potential.
