Description

SDS (carefully) on a finger-jug under the short roof. Using heel and toe trickery to keep body tension move low and right through a series of decent edges. Once established on the highest good edge either move up and slightly right to an interesting crimp/pinch hold before locking off to the lip, or just dyno it out.
Really nice movement on this one and the presence of tepid bog-water under the beginning moves adds a bit of spice to this otherwise ass-dragging problem.

If you would rather not risk a soaker, start standing on the good edge and finish with the pinch move or the dyno. This is "Rescue" and goes at about V1.

Location

On the swamp facing side of the West Nile Boulder. Head around the boulder until you find a V shaped indent in the boulder that forms a small overhang on either side. The starting hold for Lost at Sea can be found under the right hand side overhang.

This problem is only really accessible in the early spring before the snow and ice melts, raising the water level of the swamp.

Protection

Pad and maybe a tarp depending on the water level.
