Description 

Lethe, the river of forgetfulness of the five rivers of Hades. If you're climbing this route you may have forgotten that there's better routes very nearby. That said, its not a bad route, just not much to it. Climb the slab and overhang left of Evelyn, and follow the easy crack from the ledge to the top.

I don't feel this is a 5.7 but closer to a 5.5 which is rare for the lake. It was on ok climb. The belay station is on a slope so make sure you keep up with rope management. Leading it wouldn't be too bad because there are trees you can wrap off on and a flaring crack you could throw some bigger nuts in. I'll be leading this one in April when I get back for a beer festival. Beautiful rock up there.
