Description:

This is the rightmost climb on 'The Arrowhead' formation. Begin 10' right of "Thief Among Us" under the obvious hand crack. Boulder past a few painful finger locks and a bolt. Jam the awesome hand crack thru an awkward bulge (5.10). Move right onto a steep face of black rock, passing a bolt to chain anchors. *Dew Mound is an alpine area with loads of loose rock. It is suggested to wear a helmet, and be aware of other climbers above and below you at all times.

Descent Options:

rappel with 60 meter rope.

4 out of 5 stars good climb

wouldn't necessarily call it a splitter crack, but great views in an alpine setting!
