|Lost Creek Lower Tier
This is the crack on the immediate right of Hidden Falls. This route is water polished and gets pretty wet when the Falls are flowing.
One bolt at the start.
Hike left and scramble down the right side of Hidden Falls Wall or as per the standard Lower Tier descent.

the start is super interesting. gave me a gobie to remember. it looks like it mellows out after the start, but looks are definitely deceiving here.

The bolt at the start has been replaced with a new 1/2 inch stainless bolt. Still tough, but lower chance of breaking the hanger when you get spit out of this.
Edit to add: I brought the big gear and sewed this one up.

There is a bolted anchor on top of this. It's in a bad spot for the climb. I'm pretty sure it was placed by canyoneers as a rap anchor. But it does work to belay and rappel.

Handren guide calls for single rack to 5" - Didn't place anything bigger than a #3 on this bugger, if I even placed that.
Start is very interesting and much more difficult than it looks at first glance. Upper crack is very good and just fun jamming and movement. Single rack from small cams to 3" should do the trick...and I'm weak sauce and sewed most of it up.
Start is hard if you are short (I'm 5'7 for reference) and very slick for non-varnished sandstone.

The start is really tough, much harder than, say, Brass Balls. It's really fun though and protects well.
