Arrowhead Mountain, North Face. The rather hidden north face of this peak is one of the many surprises in the northern part of the Wind Rivers. The central and western portion of the face is glacier polished. From a camp below the peak on September 5 Andy Carson and I vetoed getting stuck on what appeared to be poor cracks systems there and followed the line of a prominent rib on the face which ends just east of the summit. NCCS II or III, F7.
