Description 

Lost and Found can be found on the tier below and a bit West of the Radlands slab.

This route chases the line of bolts immediately left of the arete and "Take Five". A thin move gains a short slab and largely moderate climbing to a stance below a small roof. From here, one can get an overhead clip that protects the crux pull over the roof, and the difficulties will end once established above the roof. The crux pull seemed hard and a bit inobvious. While a long ape index may be useful, good powerful crimp and pinch strength might be just as vital.

Lost and Found is a fun route, well-protected, powerful, and well worth the effort. Double the length and it would get three stars.


Protection 

Seven draws, something for the cold shut anchors at the top, and a short rope. These cold shuts were still in good shape.

Spoiler alert-

It's helpful to clip the 6th draw (on the left face of the little corner) with just a biner, instead of a quickdraw.
