Comments: High quality climb that could use a little cleaning.
That would make it one of the best climbs at Lost.
You may want to bring two number 1's (red) also in addition to two number 2,s.

Comments: I gave it a good first scrub yesterday 7-31-14.The bolt is not there but once we get a bit of rain I will head back to hit it again to try and find the bolt hole.I have an idea of the stance you may have had while drilling although there isn't anything that looked too comfy to stand on for too long!I may try cleaning a bit more to the left of what I did yesterday as you may have taken more of a diagonal line from the left up to the crack.

Yes,that crack will take some great gear just up from th... more >>

Comments: Edge,
Thanks for the history on this route.I was asking John s and TC about it this year and no one seemed to know much about it.
I have tried looking for that bolt on rappel and I am almost certain it is not there.
Yes that crack near the top will take great gear.I am sure between chinos and myself we can get this cleaned up and restored.
That will make 7 routes to climb in the AP area which should bring some interest and keep it a bit cleaner.
Maybe that bolt is hiding under all that moss!

Comments: There are only two bolts on this pitch.
I agree crux is getting to first bolt then cam on the right then second bolt above the pothole then anchor.I did not see a third bolt.

Comments: A couple of things to settle here.
The climb just left of Weak Nuts is Numb Nuts (two newer bolts just left of Weak Nuts up to a flake(gear) then finish on upper crack of Weak Nuts.

The next climb to the left is Rhumb Line with a lonely bolt about 30 ft off the ground climb past that for about 15 ft to another bolt at a stance a bit in the black moss to the right(both just replaced 7-24-14)then run it out straight up to a crack just left of weak nuts(gear) and to the rappel anchor(tree) on weak... more >>

Comments: Robert,
just to clarify,the line of Lost Arch is a totally independent line from Found Arch.
Found Arch is the line just right of Groov-in with the first two bolts fairly close together protecting the crux moves before stepping left across the moss streak to the third bolt.(also,if the first bolt seems like a stretch,there is a good right foot at the start of the overlap(look carefully before going too high) that is key to stand up and make the clip from.)

Lost Arch starts to the right at a low... more >>

Comments: Sorry you missed it Rob.
I did put some orange tape on some of the trees last year to make it easier to follow.
If I get some time soon I will head up and see what it looks like.
Should be less than 10 minutes from the tracks to the base.
I'll bet the bugs are pretty bad right now though...

Comments: only one pin John.
It is a bugaboo I think at least halfway up and off to the right before you step left to the final rails and bolt near the top.
On another note,a friend scrubbed Wack-a-mole/Sticks last year and we just replaced the bolt on 5-13-14.
This may see another accent this year!
A couple of people are "interested".
John do you know if that moderate short crack on the very left end of the slab has been done?Just curious as I am giving it a good cleaning.It will be a nice little 5.5? or... more >>

Comments:
  • * Gear beta spoiler***
There is a small cam(micro) in the seam partway into the start of the first real friction moves.A little heady for sure.
When Chris and I cleaned this up a few years back we also noticed an old 1/4 inch hole down low on the route which would protect those first moves from groundfall.
Anybody know the history behind that??
Original,added later and removed??

Comments: I would have to agree about that pillar not being a 3.
I think the only reason it gets that is how short it is.
That is the steepest grade 3 pillar I have ever done ;)
Great route for sure

Lost in the sun starts WAY down and right of where you were at the next big open slab a few hundred feet right.

Comments: I did this route yesterday 11-12-12.
Fun little adventure.

To echo what Jeremy said:
I would bring a small rack to #1 bd (we only used up to a .75).You will need two ropes to get off(4 double rope raps).
I am not sure but would almost bet that 50 meter ropes will NOT get you to the belays (maybe the first?).All pitches seem to be around 180 ft or so.

I did this route again yesterday 6-21-14. You will need 60 meter ropes for all pitches.
