East Face of Lone Pine Peak, Three Arrows. In April Hooman Aprin, Randy Grandstaff and I climbed this route on the sharp eastern rock crest of Lone Pine Peak. The route follows a southeast-facing trough, which occasionally becomes a dihedral, then a deep, difficult chimney. Two pitches had short aid sections, including three bolts placed to gain a difficult dihedral. The summit of the formation (named because of the likeness to arrows, as seen from Lone Pine) probably had not been previously reached. NCCS III, F9, A2.
