BETA PHOTO: The LF Finger Crack heads left and joins LF proper...


The crux is the lower 1/3 of the route.


This route is to the right of Lost Face 5.6. It is a thin crack that splits. The left split connects with Lost Face. The right to the top out for IBEX.

Is this not Lost Face Fingercrack?

It is...

LFF was first loaded into this database in 2007 and this entry just in recent June 2012. I will talk with the contributor about his entry. He only gives the route two stars as well.... hmmm?

Burt, this is a different route than the finger crack. As explained in the description, the finger crack route heads left at the split and joins up with LF. You can instead continue straight up at the split (i.e., stay on the right fork) for a shorter, but pleasant climb.

So we'll re-sort it to the R of Lost Face Finger Crack ...

In the book it states that you could either top out above Ibex or continue with Lost Face. As far as I'm concerned this is not a different line. If anything it is a minor variation of a variation.

Andy's probably right that this is more of a variant than a separate line. In any case, I borrowed Andy's pic of LFFC and drew some lines on it showing the 2 options.
