Layla is located on the right portion of Lost Wall. Find the large roof in the center of the cliff with the fixed piece w/ tattered webbing (5.8 A2). Layla climbs the crack on the right side of this roof. It heads up a crack in a slab to a 5 foot roof (protects with thin nuts/tcu). Next, the route heads into a dihedral that gets steep. The upper dihedral is the crux and protects on nested thin nuts until the crack widens (RPs may work well, but I forgot them and managed to make it safe). Belay above the short chimney. The second pitch climbs 180 feet of nice chimney (5.7ish). The chimney can be stemmed and face climbed, and protects with an assortment of gear outside the chimney. Walk off.

Rated 5.10a in Kerry's guidebook, the crux moves are probably more like solid 5.10. This is a high value climb with a backcounry feel.


standard rack to 3" with a good assortment of thin nuts
