Description 

The most well protected and classic lead on the face. Ascend the obvious finger crack to the right of the normal Lost Face route. After 35 feet or so this route joins the standard 5.6 just below the roof. Any number of finishes is possible from here (5.6-5.8 see Lost Face and Lost Face Overhangs I & II for descriptions)


Protection 

Standard rack, TCU's helpful.

It's amazing to me that with all of the routes and variations on routes and variations on variations on routes at Devil's Lake, that this climb was not given a name. This route offers some of the best finger locks at the Lake.

Traversing into Overhang II from this finger crack is superb.
