Description 

Lost and Found is the along runnel of ice located 400 feet to the right of Wowee zowee. Start by climbing a 150' of thin ice or snow covered rock on low angle terrain to reach the ice. Continue up a thin flow for another hundred feet did the base of the business section of this route. Pull on to an incredible 300-foot sustained ribbon of blue ice. Once you near the top of the Wowie Zowie wall the ice will taper off. Repel the route from here.



Thanks for the additional info Bob

This route is called Lost and Found. Bob Crawford and Martin Martinez made the first ascent in 1988. A pterodactyl was dropped from high on the climb and was found on the last rap in deep snow, thus the routes name.

Thanks for the info Bob, I am hoping to sit down with BT to fill in a few of the gaps. If you have more history or story's to add that would be amazing. I hope to catch up one of these day and hear about some chapters from the past over a few beers.
