Great job and wonderful report. That first move out of the notch onto the Arrow proper always seems to get people's attention.

I am surprised by how much of the route appears fixed.

Thanks for posting.

Nice pics, Clint!

Fantastic thing about the LA Tip is that one almost always gets to warm up to the exposure, pitch after pitch. On the Arrow, who step let off that notch and straightaway you've got two grand of air under your boots. The second to last face pitch is one of the best in the Valley for it's grade (5.11c/d) if you can be bothered to free climb it. And the rock is some of the best in Yosemite.

"Flint hard and flawless." An all-time classic.

I had no idea the Arrow Tip was such an interesting route. I had stereotyped it as something like a steep Serenity Crack but it looks natural and exciting. Thanks Clint for the superb job of depicting it.

Nice TR that brings back great memories of the climb and the friends I've done it with. I like the climb so much I've done it 7 times..

Missed this one too, Great TR Clint!

Great description on the ropework needed to polish this off without the tyrolean.
