Description 

Climbs around and on the Lost Face, which is just north of Prospect Point (at the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail). Join the crowds on the point, then look to your left.


Getting There 

Go to the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail. Follow faint trail out north from the overlook. Setting a rap on Lost Face means climbing out the small separate pinnacle just north of Prospect Point.

Lost Face Overhangs I & II 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Lost Face Area
These are both variations of the normal Lost Face Route (5.6). Basically Climb the 5.6 version of LF up to the overhang, which can be surpassed in two ways.One variation ascends the left hand crack through the roof. The other goes up to the right of that on good holds. The two variations join again above the roof and ascend a more central crack (crux if you miss the holds). They both continue straight to top....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

CONDITION REPORT 

2 large metrolius curved nuts (9 and 10) were stuck in a crack onn the top far left side of the shelf (view from bottom), next to the flat part below the boulder. If you can get them out, they're yours, otherwise I'd consider them reliable, as I placed them on July 21st 2012.

Your nuts are now property of the HWDAMF. Will not go unused.
