This area starts at the height of land past the Thin Slabs area, where you'll find Red Pillar. The hits just keep coming: after Arrow, look up to the huge roofs of Supper's Ready, and the distinct roof and arete of Feast of Fools that Hans' Puss traverses so nicely. A few routes later you'll find a massive right-facing corner of Andrew.
Meander on down the cliff: the next big left-facing corner is the classic airy 5.6 of Moonlight, and up a short incline you'll find the big right-facing corner of Erect Direction, with Cascading Crystal Kaleidoscope (CCK) just to the right. We'll end this area at the far (right) end of the wall past CCK, with the testpiece Modern Times. Past this is the huge cleft and buttress of High Exposure.
Approach: For this area, use the The CCK trail is just beyond the Andrew boulder. The next trail is [[High E]]112043498. , the The new Arrow trail. The next trail is [[Hans' Puss]]111944318. , or just past that, the The Hans' Puss trail. The next trail is [[CCK]]112043486 .
CCK and neighbors are approached by the next trail up from the carriage road -- the next trail after you spot the huge Twilight Zone roof, which is just next to Andrew.
Descent: The Arrow wall sports bolts at the clifftop where Three Doves and Annie Oh! meet, and at Arrow. There are bolts at the GT for Arrow; you can rappel the cliff with one rope via the Arrow bolts (watch rope ends on the last rappel), with minimal interference to ascending parties.
A pair of bolts is shared above the first pitch of Feast of Fools and Hans' Puss.
There is also a bolted rappel line at The Last Will Be First (three rappels with one rope), and many routes have anchors on trees.
There is a rappel line at No Glow (3 single-rope raps with a 60m rope).
Back in days of yore, the Arrow rappel went from a tree on the buttress to the right of the route, hanging free for almost two ropes' worth.
