Description 

These are both variations of the normal Lost Face Route (5.6). Basically Climb the 5.6 version of LF up to the overhang, which can be surpassed in two ways.

One variation ascends the left hand crack through the roof. The other goes up to the right of that on good holds. The two variations join again above the roof and ascend a more central crack (crux if you miss the holds). They both continue straight to top.

Protection 

Standard rack or TR.

Way more pleasing line than the 5.6.

Tricky going left at the overhang, the feet aren't too good.

Two small bees nests protect the top cracks before the finish. I was moving very gingerly due to the fact that one got me in the forehead last week while climbing Chicago. My face was like a balloon for a couple days. Anyways, just a heads up.

One of my favorite climbs! Enjoyed the heck out of this. Led the 5.6 lost face, then came back on TR for all the variations on this wall. Next time I'll just lead these 5.8's. Great pro just below the overhang.

Be aware that the wasp nest is still there, about 10' above the overhang. It is possible to go around it without sticking your hand in the crack where the nest is.
