Description

Name's origin: According to Reed Cundiff, "Climb is named 'Lost Spectacle' since Charles (Bill) Williams lost a lens out of his glasses on the first ascent from the notch around 1956."

Lost Spectacle is a 200 foot pinnacle just to the north of La Luz Trail. A deep narrow notch separates Lost Spectacle from north side of Upper La Cueva Canyon. Mike Hill's guide indicates routes on all sides.

Getting There

Hike the La Luz Trail from above or below. Less than one mile below the 5 mile point, the trail will skirt the west face of Lost Spectacle; the trail is just out of sight below the photo.
