Description 

This is a small but very nice little cliff located above and to the left of Sundown's Main Cliff. It hosts a variety of route from 5.4 to 5.11+ and is almost never crowded. It gets a mix of sun and shade and can be a little bit windier than the Main Cliff. The rock quality is excellent although some areas may see seepage.

Getting There 

To get to Lost Horizon follow the directions for Sundown Ledge's main cliff. After you escape the talus field and meet the cliff, turn left and hike under the damp extension of the Main cliff ( no more good climbs). Shortly the trail will head up to the area known as Lost Horizon's. You will be at the left hand edge with a gully about 75' to your left. To access the routes turn right and pick your choice.

The local guides use this crag a lot, especially on Saturdays, so don't be surprised if you arrive and find lots of company. But don't worry, they're a friendly bunch and will do their best to manage things so everyone gets plenty of access to the routes.
