Description:

LA's last two pithces. Can be broken into three pitches. P1-all fixed gear. P2-big cams. P3-a couple of bolts, some fixed gear and a rivet ladder. Great belay ledges. Don't forget to trail your rap line so you can do the tyrolean back to safe ground.

5 out of 5 stars Worth the hike

and the hike is brutal, but so is the exposure. Did it in two pitches, you only need one 4.5 Cam for the offwidth which isn't bad freeclimbing. Topstepping in the aiders on a rivet with a thin stopper hung on it doesn't do much for me though.

5 out of 5 stars Tust The Tip

Did this route for my second time, we did it with a group of five people and I did some filming. Both times when I tossed my rope over the rim to start the rappel the rope has gotten stuck in the Lost Arrow Chimney, both I had to rappel 20' in to the chimney and free my rope from the rope eating crack, then jug back up. Be careful when tossing your rope.

5 out of 5 stars Lost Arrow Spire tip

Wow!! First aid climb split into 3 pitches. All worth it for the final tyrolean traverse!

5 out of 5 stars LA Spire ascent jun 07

Did the spire in two pitches. Used long runners for traverse and had minimal rope drag. Incredible exposure; already planning on doing it again.
Fixed gear is in decent shape...

5 out of 5 stars Classic!!!!

went to solo....met up w/ a Brit who'd never aided, and a Venezuelan who spoke no English. The Brit took the 1st pitch (mostly free), I took the 2nd (some manky fixed shite pulled), and when the Venezuelan finished the third, we couldn't ever tell wether the rope was fixed!!! Stilll.....Beautiful!!!!! Instant exposure.
