Description

The most well protected and classic lead on the face. Ascend the obvious finger crack to the right of the normal Lost Face route. After 35 feet or so this route joins the standard 5.6 just below the roof. Any number of finishes is possible from here (5.6-5.8 see Lost Face and Lost Face Overhangs I & II for descriptions)

Protection

Standard rack, TCU's helpful.

Led thing thing this past weekend when it was 90 degrees and humid and covered with wasps (one stung me right on the top of my head) and I still think it is one of my favorite easy leads at DL. That finger crack just feels so amazing and its all super secure. IMO classic for sure. Sep 8, 2015

Traversing into Overhang II from this finger crack is superb. Jun 29, 2013

It's amazing to me that with all of the routes and variations on routes and variations on variations on routes at Devil's Lake, that this climb was not given a name. This route offers some of the best finger locks at the Lake. May 7, 2007
