Visible in the boulderfield below Horse Rampart, this rib of rock is more visited by hikers scrambling than by climbers. The three steps of Lothar's Ledges provide a rare opportunity to do a "multipitch" linkup at the Lake. Like Turk's Head ridge, most variations are easy, but those who are really determined can find a harder linkup here.
