Description Suggest change

Lost Nuts climbs the distinct flaring crack just to the left of Death Watch. From the ground it doesn't look so bad...until you try to do the first moves! Hard flaring jams, plus the leaning nature of the crack make this thing a beast! After getting established, move up a bit and clip a bolt a few feet before the flare pinches down to a seam. After that it's still in your face with tiny gear, strenuous stances, and not much rest. Fortunately, there's a 'Thank God' jug near about 80% of the way up...

Location Suggest change

Up and right of Chug A Lug. Starts on a boulder just left of Death Watch. Pretty obvious flare.

Protection Suggest change

1 bolt plus lots of tiny gear. Small nuts and C3's.
