Kevin Riley on the First Ascent of Lost and Losing...
Start left hand on a good crimp on the arete, right hand on a small side pull. Pull on and make delicate moves on small holds to jugs at the lip. Definitely helps to be tall!
Time will tell for the grade, shorter climbers will have to own up on some of the smaller holds or make a jump to the top.
Follow directions to "No Fat Chicks" and follow the trail down the hill to the 5.7 Arete Slab, skirt the left side of the boulder (climbers right) down the hill. Walk to the right passing Washed Out and into a pit. The problem is on the left.
Spotter and a couple pads protect the sharp corner behind the landing.
