This is the steepest and one of the busiest areas at Lost. Most people shoe up at this spot and it is the hang when that quick afternoon thunderstorm rolls through. Keeping up with the tradition of contrived problems, the cave is full of link ups and forced problems. Great fun to be had by those who do not mind the contrived nature. An attempt has been made to describe some of the better problems. Ask a local to point out some problems and make up your start. The "standard start" is sitting in the very bottom and center of the cave at the lowest chalked slots that are side by side. One slopes slightly and the other is flat.
