Description

Lost Elden is a small cirque of quality dacite just North of the old school bouldering hide-away "The Bird Sanctuary". This small area has seen few climbers throughout the years and only hosts a dozen or less quality single pitches.

Getting There

Park as you would for "The Bird Sanctuary", hike North up steep slabs and terrain avoiding cactus, yucca, and unpleasantness. Routes are scattered and not centralized.

Like many secluded areas of S.Elden the approach has potential remnants of native pottery, please avoid stepping on or destroying the pottery. IT IS A CRIME to disturb objects of Archaeological Significance.

Stumbled upon this area when walking the dog. The lines look really sick! Has anyone tried or done the large ominous offwidth out of the main area and way off to the left and up? Feb 9, 2014

Jacob- The line Im guessing you looked at (semi-obvious) has been done. Its actually two separate pitches. You can easily find the base, look for some webbing around a tree on a ledge... Feb 10, 2014
