Description 

Without the big, vegetated ledge halfway up, this route might be one of the better lines at Lost Horizon. As it is, this is certainly still a worthwhile route with enjoyable climbing.

Start under a 10' high roof below an obvious fingercrack splitting the face above. Pull the roof and enjoy nice finger locking up to the ledge. Climb blocky features off the right side of the ledge to a stance at a steep, wide crack (no wide gear necessary). Pull awkwardly over the steepness onto easy slabby terrain and scramble up to a double-bolt anchor with rap rings. There is also a tree with slings about 20' higher at the top of the cliff if you plan on climbing a route at the upper tier.

Location 

Where the approach trail meets the cliff at the more popular routes (Punk Rock, Rock Garden, etc.) walk about 50 yards to the right along the cliff. Incisor Crack is easily identified by a small roof about 10' up and namesake finger crack.
