BETA PHOTO: First section of Lost Corner and Crossover

Open with restrictions - Private Property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Lost Corner and Crossover share the same first 50 foot section. Follow the large-hand crack to a small ledge with some loose rocks. A smaller crack parallels on the left. Trickier than it looks.

From the ledge you have a couple of choices...

Location 

Small left-facing corner to the left a bigger left-facing corner (Downcast). Rapp down (not easy to spot) or scramble down the descent trail from the blue trail and work your way climber's right about 75 feet.

Protection 

Very large cams are very welcome in the first section. A large chockstone can be slung halfway up. Suitable trees for anchors are found a little way from the edge. A 60 meter rope is fine, but knot the ends if you rapp.

The bushes and trees growing out of the crack in the upper section definitely hinder the star count on this one. But that 5.8 variation might make the fight through the brush worth it. I'll get back to you on that one.
