History

From Ivan Rezucha: Annie O'Neill and I named this climb. We did what we thought was the FA (other than for a pesky fixed pin) back in the 80s. Because of the pin, we named it "Lost and Found". It was done (apparently by Ants Leemets), then lost, then found again (by us).

Description

My main reason for posting this route is that I've found myself standing below it on two separate occasions when I was looking for Last Will be First.

The first time I climbed it, and only realized I was on something else 20 feet or so above the first roof. The second time, two other people who had previously climbed Last Will be First looked up and agreed we were at the start -- fortunately, I realized we were below Lost and Found and moved us right, finally getting a chance to lead Last Will be First.

P1: Climb the 4-foot-high left-facing corner and crack, aiming for the right side of a 15-foot-long overhang. Step up and right around the overhang before traversing back left 10 feet or so. Climb straight up the face through a bulging section to the GT Ledge. 5.6 PG, 150 feet.

Rappel down the bolted line over The Last Will Be First to climbers' right.

Location

Located between Unholy Wick (35 feet to the left) and The Last Will be First (20 feet to the right).

Protection

Standard Gunks rack, good gear G/PG all the way
