  • Description 

    Start off on a "slippery when wet" series of jugs in the center of the more Northward buttress of the Lost Porch, and climb those up and to a spire-like false summit about 180' up (est.). Come down to the SW onto a ledge, and then continue up the clean and juggy East Face of the true summit of the entire formation another 80'. The summit block is a balanced slab wedged between spires and offers cool views of the Back Porch and Skunk Canyon.


    This route lies on the second (north) buttress of the Lost Flatiron and ascends that wall. This is perhaps 60m to the North of the standard route and much more directly west of the downclimb from the back of the Front Porch.


    Solo - none noted particularly. Bring a standard rack with run-outs expected.
