Brian Stampe walking up Lost Ninja. And yes, it i...


Unusual moves on ever steepening rock. Several side pulls and good jugs... reaching them is probably the crux.


First route right of the obvious double crack system in the corner.


10 bolts.

which route would be just to the right of this? 11 bolts and a set of anchors. it would be third to the right of pakistani. there is a rock with red marker that it would be "lost ninja".

no way this thing is 5.10- like a lot of the recent votes, even felt easy for a canyon 9. get on black sheets of rain or red hooks for eyes for a 10a climb.

and i stand corrected. i just did this on a recent trip out to the hills to wind down the day. i thought i remember it being easy 9 but 9+ it is. felt really hard cranking on very small pockets.
