I was the second on what we believe to have been the 2nd ascent of the Arrowhead; the leader placed a PVC pipe summit register on top. Can anyone confirm if this is still in place?
Anyway, as I recall it felt more like 5.11 than the supposed 5.9. Either way, amazing route, stupendous views, and a gnarly approach that left me hypoglycemic and semi-delirious on the hike down past Hell Roaring Lake.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
