  • Description 

    The Lost Boulder is stacked with hard, high quality problems on excellent rock, though it's a a difficult bloc to find. Located in a shallow gully below the Musical Boulders of Eldo, it's best if you go with someone who has been there before. The boulder can be found via a faint climber's trail that descends (south) from Blue Whale and Barrel Rider, or east about 5 minutes hiking from Suspension of Disbelief. The boulder is home to the classics Lost, Elegant Universe, and Elegant Infinite.

    Getting There 

    This can be reached by trending northwest from The Musical Boulders via a faint climber's trail into a gully. It is easier to find by hiking the main trail and avoiding The Musical Boulders altogether, hiking until reaching a small cairn with a faint trail that leads to Blue Whale and Barrel Rider. From this boulder, trend south (down) along a faint trail, keeping an eye out for where the trail breaks left (east). This is no more than a 10 minutes walk from Blue Whale. It is easiest to find when you go with someone who knows the way!
