Description 

Climbs around and on the Lost Face, which is just north of Prospect Point (at the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail). Join the crowds on the point, then look to your left.

Go to the intersection of the Fire Road and West Bluff Trail. Follow faint trail out north from the overlook. Setting a rap on Lost Face means climbing out the small separate pinnacle just north of Prospect Point.
