Description

This fine face route lies on the outside face of the Arrowhead flake. Begin on the right side of the face where a thin seam/crack heads up the face to about 1/2 height. Climb the face and seam/crack past 5 bolts (10c/d), move left and up on ultra thin face past the 6th bolt (12a) which leads to easier (10+/11-) but sustained climbing to a 2 bolt anchor (also used by Firewater Chimney). 90 foot lower/off and/or rappel.

Protection

10 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/90+ foot rap -- 60 meter rope reaches just fine. (Optional blue TCU between 4th & 5th bolts.)

Very well protected with a short and technical crux. Interesting climbing for the full length of the route. Apr 23, 2006
Great stuff! Opted to TR this one after rapping Firewater Chimney. Nice, steep edging on incut patina in a techy-corner yields to seemingly blank friction slab finish. Just when the angle starts to ease back, the holds completely disappear! Nov 5, 2012

Some help folks: "90 plus rap" on the I can do it with a 60m rope and a bit of stretch, or 90 plus as in I'll be a few feet off the ground? Mar 11, 2013

30 meter = 98.42519685 feet so you'll be fine. The notation on the rappel length is a carryover from the days when 50 meter ropes were more common (25 meters = 82.020997375 feet). Mar 11, 2013
