Fred climbing through the overlap/roof of Lost in ...

Description 

Engaging slabby climbing with cool position up the obvious arête up the left edge of the Hidden Tower (right-most edge of the Easy Bake Alcove.) Begin at the toe of the arête and work your way up the edge to a small overlap/roof. Staying on the arête proper here is aesthetic, sharp and devious 5.11 climbing but it also feels natural to clip the bolt above the roof, move right a bit and climb up the groove, to bypass the difficult roof move, at 5.10ish.

More interesting climbing leads to one more difficult move just below the anchors.

Location 

The far right edge of the Easy Bake Alcove. This is the line that marks the right edge of the EB alcove and the left edge of Hidden Tower.

Protection 

9 bolts to chains with biners. Unfortunately, expect some rope drag on account of where the chains are placed.
