"Rohr route" [sic] is the Rohrer rappel route from the notch down to the base of the wall. It is an alternative to ascending from the notch to the rim and going down the Falls Trail.

[edit to add:]
His name is Tom Rohrer. I don't know why people write "Rohr". He established rappel routes down the Nose, on Glacier Point Apron, and other places. Tom is a climber. He did several first ascents in the Pinnacles in the 50s and 60s. In 2006 he ran the Los Angeles Marathon for the 21st year in a row, at age 70. He posts here sometimes as "MAD BOLTER" (not to be confused with Madbolter or madbolter1).

It's not a new route? I was just wondering because it seems interesting someone (Mr Rohr?) would put the trouble of installing rappel stations with chains, purely for the Lost Arrow Chimney?

Rappels and establishing them was Rohr's big contribution. He began doing it way back in the 70's. Not really a climber.

Here's the rappel route chart that I got from Clint. The chart starts from a ledge 50 feet below the first belay station for the LA tip route.
