Start about 10 ft right of Groov-in, between Found Arch and the dark rock of Vector. Climb past TWO 3/8" bolts and continue up past 2 more to a 2-bolt anchor with chains.

Per Bob A's COMMENT in Rhumb Line: "Lost Arch has a low stainless bolt just above a small overlap. The second bolt is quite a ways up through the crux.The third is just behind a small tree growing out of a big pocket then a fourth straight up to a two bolt anchor to the right of a rotten flake."


4 Draws, plus maybe a longer sling, should the temptation to reach over and clip the new 3/8" bolt on Vector arise !

Descent: A single 70m makes it from the chains; a single 60m would require some downclimbing. If lowering with a 60m TIE A KNOT in the end.

Great route with excellent rock, bolted on lead so be solid at the grade. You have to pull through the crux moves 10-12 feet above your first bolt, blowing the second clip is really not an option (the sphincter was pursed!!). Once you clip the second the next two bolts are run out but on excellent rock with amazing features and continue up on increasingly more easy terrain. A good one for the head, step up, commit and go.
