The Arrow Head route is a little contrived as it just sqeezes in between the other routes near it but the upper section makes the route very worthwhile as it's thin and steep making for some interesting face climbing. You just have to try and not use easier holds off to the right and left. If anyone out there thinks my description is not correct, please let me know and I'll correct this posting. The Falcon Guide by Mike Carville shows the route more to the right but there is nothing hard over there...
Arrow Head goes up just right of Zephyr and left of the easier bolted route to the right. Zephyr and Arrow Head are towards the right side of the Lower Tier. Zephyr can be found by looking for a bolt line heading up past a faint, worn, whitish band of rock just left of a 4 foot wide 2" overhang midway up. Pick a line for Arrow Head just right of this little overhang and go straight up from the ground to the top.
Anchors at the top can be used to top rope this climb. Otherwise, it would be a very bold lead with little gear.
