Lost at Sea is a totally amazing variation to the fourth pitch of Atlantis. Very much worth the time and effort if you're up there.
Step off the right end of the ledge atop Atlantis' third pitch and into the obvious left-facing flake. Ascend this flake as it gradually thins and becomes more difficult, eventually arching delicately to the right. The wall is steep and blank here, and at certain points one begins to wonder if gear behind the top of the flake would just rip it right off the wall in the event of a fall! A few final, desperate hand-traverse moves lead to a wonderful mantle up to a two-bolt anchor.
Rap back to the ledge (or continue/escape off to the right at 5.12?).
Single set of cams.

I'll never forget the sound the flake makes as you traverse across it. Feels like your on a giant potatoe chip.

This is one of the best pitches I have ever done.
You can either rappel down and way right, then scramble down to the notch that is the standard descent for The Sorcerer, or rap down & left (back to the belay) to finish on P4 of Atlantis.
