Description Suggest change

This is one of those destination climbs at the Gunks (sometimes listed as The Arrow in older sources). There are also other classic moderates in the same area (Three Doves, Annie Oh!, and Limelight).  A bit of discussion on the history of Arrow here

At the cliff, spot the huge left-facing corner of Easy Verschneidung (Easy V) on the right; scramble up on ledges about 20' left of Easy V to start.

P1: Follow face and crack systems up and slightly left to a bolted belay at the ledge system under a roof. A bit runout towards the top. 5.6, 100'.

P2: Angle left through the notch in the roof. After a few hard tugs, you'll be below a beautiful white slab. Follow this slab, passing 2 bolts on the way to a final headwall. The crux reach is protected by a final bolt. 5.8, 100'. Bolts on this pitch were replaced in 2015 (see comment).

Rap twice with a single 60M rope from bolt anchors at the GT ledge and mid-cliff ledge.
