The LF Finger Crack heads left and joins LF proper. The alternative finish (Lost in the Woods?) goes straight up a finger sized crack and tops out at a tree back in the IBEX gully. (Photo by Andy Hansen)

[Hide Comment] It is...

LFF was first loaded into this database in 2007 and this entry just in recent June 2012. I will talk with the contributor about his entry. He only gives the route two stars as well.... hmmm? Jul 31, 2012

[Hide Comment] Burt, this is a different route than the finger crack. As explained in the description, the finger crack route heads left at the split and joins up with LF. You can instead continue straight up at the split (i.e., stay on the right fork) for a shorter, but pleasant climb. Sep 8, 2012

[Hide Comment] In the book it states that you could either top out above Ibex or continue with Lost Face. As far as I'm concerned this is not a different line. If anything it is a minor variation of a variation. Sep 9, 2012

[Hide Comment] Andy's probably right that this is more of a variant than a separate line. In any case, I borrowed Andy's pic of LFFC and drew some lines on it showing the 2 options. Sep 10, 2012
