[Hide Comment] The start is the hardest part of this climb. These are not 5.5 moves. The finish got my attention. Was a fun climb, but would not consider it a beginner climb. Would i go back and do it again?....yeah I would. Jun 16, 2019

[Hide Comment] Agree with Jeff that this is definitely not for the beginners. Cruxy start but it's not over until the chains. Real hard last move for the sub-5'8" people in the group. Oct 21, 2019
[Hide Comment] Watch me climb it youtu.be/1QkFO7I7WlU Climbing my second climb post lock down. Climbing Lost seemed poetic since we pretty much got lost trying to finding the Knowhere Wall. At the time, the route was rated 5.6. The route felt a little stiff (especially the start and finish) at this grade. The route was recently upgraded to a 5.8 which felt fair. The ending seemed a little precarious since the sloping ramp I was standing on was wet and the holds were not as good as one would hope for lol. Mar 12, 2021
