  • Description 

    Starts just to the right of Lost at Sea, on the lower side of the arete feature. Move up into a corner, pull up and follow the weakness up until you come to a juggy traverse left toward the anchors of Lost at Sea.

    Watch out for loose rock and test holds carefully - the base of the chimney has a large loose block. Be careful esp w/ large parties that often congregate in the area at the base of the upper tier.

    With a good directional piece or two up high the whole route can be set as an alternate top-rope by leading Lost at Sea (folks often do the start and merge w/ Lost at Sea w/o directionals)


    Standard rack.
