Description

For the last few years, Zach and I have been establishing routes off of Lost Highway Ledge. This was the first route we started working on after Cross Your Mind was finished and was the key to developing the area. It was originally R/X rated and bolted on lead, ground-up. We later added a few bolts for safety, but it still requires a half dozen gear placements and a cool head.

The route starts with a bang. Boulder directly up towards the first bolt and place a finger-size cam. This is the crux of the pitch. A slightly easier start can begin just left in a corner on additional gear. Once past the first bolt, quest up a long pitch following bolts and placing gear as needed. Eventually you will wind up on Lost Beauty Ledge and the bottom of Sweeping Beauty, the classic headwall pitch. This is an adventurous pitch and not your average Boulder Canyon 5.10. Fun stuff!

Beware, you can't rap to the ground with a 70m rope from the top of this pitch. Rap to the anchors on Cross Your Mind to descend or continue up. You can also escape right at the belay to the anchor on the second pitch of Lost Highway.

Location

This route is located on the left side of Lost Highway Ledge. It is the closest route to the rappel anchors for escaping Lost Highway Ledge.

Protection

Quickdraws and gear to one inch.

This route currently has a red project tag on the first bolt. I'll remove it next time I'm up there. Jul 18, 2017
