Pretty big slabs with routes over 200 feet. The Lost Valley Slab is west-facing so might warm up on summer afternoons. We found it to be very secluded and I suspect that is the case today. Very high quality rock with lots of holds with moderate route options. FA: 1984.

Getting There 

The Lost Valley Slab is located on the slope just east of and above the Lost Valley Dude Ranch (same slope as and a few hundred yards south of Helen's Dome). The slab can be approached by starting at the old Molly Gulch CG. Cross the creek and start a rising contour to avoid private property and arrive at the base.
