Description 

Climbs around and on the Lost Face, which is just north of Prospect Point (at the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail). Join the crowds on the point, then look to your left.

Go to the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail. Follow faint trail out north from the overlook. Setting a rap on Lost Face means climbing out the small separate pinnacle just north of Prospect Point.

CONDITION REPORT 
2 large metrolius curved nuts (9 and 10) were stuck in a crack onn the top far left side of the shelf (view from bottom), next to the flat part below the boulder. If you can get them out, they're yours, otherwise I'd consider them reliable, as I placed them on July 21st 2012.
