The route takes the crazy NW Arete of Lost Arrow. Clip the first bolt and perform a really crimpy, bouldery sequence to establish on a better hold and a second clip. Continue up run out terrain past a poorly located (ie dangerous) bolt. This is the fourth clip which would be much better located down and left by 10-15 feet, but it can easily be back cleaned once the next clip is made. Higher up a green or yellow Alien provides crucial pro to protect a huge run out. A final sequence of crazy fin-pinching and liebacking leads to a thin top out. Great route!
