Yeah had only done the "Direct" on the Arrow, (with "Punk" Roy, and "Swiss" Michi,) and could only just peer into the chimney at times and marvelled at the on-sight free-solo ascent by fellow Woodson climber Greg Cameron, (Eeyonkee) in the '70's...

I read only the first page. The roar of the falls made this climb entirely unlike any other.

Only one comment.

If I would ever go back

I would use goldline.

The Lost Arrow Chimney is a great route! (also probably a great ice route in the winter all you bay area folks, nod's as good as a wink, say no more!). Nice trip report.

There was a lot of ice in there... I definitely noticed and tried to take pics of it, but I don't think I got the exposure properly set for the darkness in the chimney compared to the brightness all around. Will post my pics whenever I upload 'em.

that poster is AMAZING! I have it hanging up in my hallway... next to the "BACHAR" poster...
Denny's poster is very high quality, and the price seemed much too small for something like that, but it is what it is... if you are thinking about it and haven't purchased it yet, do it!

Nice display of Denny photos (some LARGE) at the mountain room bar currently.

Wow I missed oldguy's story the first time around.

All the claustrophobia of the chimney lifted like a morning mist and with it a lot of the accumulated fatigue. We traversed from the notch toward the valley side of the spire into the healing, redeeming, ever-blessed sun

The golden age of Yosemite climbing was filled with an impressive group of people who could not only climb but also write eloquently about their adventures.

The founding fathers of American climbing. What a legacy they created.

On another thread Ed H. had a wonderful 3Mb file of the Arrow. I just blew it up at Kinko's as a 6' x 3' B/W poster for my office wall... planning expense Wr. IRS...

Hi David,
Here is the rappel chart I got from Clint. The first rappel starts 50 feet below the first belay station for the LA Tip route. Let us know how it goes.
