Description

Vestal's neighbor, Arrow Peak, is almost equally spectacular. Prior to the revelation of an unroped route up its north side in the 1960s, it was thought to be the most difficult major mountain in Colorado to climb. Seen from Molas Pass, Arrow has the similar, sweep-ish grandeur of Vestal, and most climbers will follow the easier regular route on one of two prominent ribs on the northeast side.

Hey there,
This is a bit of a stretch, but I lost a Mythos 41.5 shoe on Arrow on 6/25/16. Even more of a stretch is the sling I also lost (slightly green and white). We were in a tight spot at the top when static electricity started snapping all over the rocks next to us, and we had to bail quickly. If you did find such gear, please email me at kawkatie11@gmail.com.
Thanks, Katie Jun 27, 2016
