The Lost Arrow Spire
The Lost Arrow Spire is a detached pillar in Yosemite Valley, located immediately adjacent to Upper Yosemite Falls. The structure includes the Lost Arrow Spire Chimney climbing route which is recognized as one of the most spectacular settings in Yosemite. I have highlighted the image below to show the location of the spire on the granite wall.
Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness and Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, Giant Sequoia groves, and biological diversity.
Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea, largely owing to the work of people like Galen Clark and John Muir in getting the Yosemite Grant passed by congress and signed by President Lincoln.
