The crack/groove on the far right of the Main Slab. The lower crack leads to TWO 3/8" s.s. bolts and the upper crack (gear) and a tree ledge. Rap with 2 ropes.
The F.A. was 1973...The 5.6 rating is pretty "Old School". My notes from 2007 say "This is a pretty serious climb!...(if you don't have the gear)"

Looks like the climb's been brushed recently (2015), Thanks Chris!


Take TWO # 2 (gold) Camalots, TWO #1 (Red) and TWO # 3's (Blue) unless you can cruse 5.6+ cracks.

High quality climb that could use a little cleaning.
That would make it one of the best climbs at Lost.
You may want to bring two number 1's (red) also in addition to two number 2,s.

Right there with Bob A. A little scrubbing and some doubles in the sizes mentioned above as well as a #3 would really make this route a worthwhile outing. Some fun moves mixed in with a little spice will keep your attention from the moment you leave the ground. Very fun route!
