|Lost Orbit Rock - East Face
A bouldery start on incut plates (crux) leads over a bulge and onto a vertical face with abundant edges. Higher, fun climbing leads up the face to a high-step move on plates and a balancy lieback move up and right to the anchors.
Super fun climbing with great protection make this a highly recommended route of the area.
Located between Lost Highway and Lunar Eclipse, this route climbs the left side of an attractive plated face.
6 bolts, chain anchors

This climb is soooo much fun! The start yields a puzzle that will be solved according to your height, reach and particular technical strengths. Then lots of vertical movement above the overhanging area with great moves up high!

The clip isn't too bad if you boulder up high and clip at your waist.
