The Shaft is the furthest left (SW) route on Arrowhead. Approach the same way you would for other Arrowhead routes, but continue past all the routes until youre underneath the lowest point of the ridge connecting Arrowhead and Mchenry's.
Traverse up right on grassy ledges, and make a nice traverse on good rock to a right-leaning ramp. From there, follow the crack system to the top taking a left at the final short headwall.
The view from here is super cool so soak it up before continuing up McHenry's NE Ridge.
