Description

The Southeast Face of Arrowhead Peak is one of the jewels of the Northern Bridgers. It stands out distinctly from the back bowls and peaks, begging to have tracks on it. Get here earlier in the day, because the sun will have its way with the steeper upper face. Boot up the South-east Chute in the back of Arrowhead Bowl and climb the talus to the summit, a pretty easy walk. The South-east face is directly beneath you. After 300 feet of wide open, it cruxes down to a tight, but short chute. Make your way through and out into a wide open South facing chute to the bottom of Arrowhead Bowl.
