Start-up as for the The Yellow Wall corner, but whereas that route goes up and left around the corner, "Lost in Yellow" continues up and right on the right side of the corner.

Follow a vague ramp up the face targeting the anchors on Scary Area (old green rope anchor). Our intent was to add a separate and distinct P2 from the Scary Area; instead of traversing right mid-way through P2 of that climb, go straight up, through various roof tiers (multiple cruxes) and exit on the obvious corner to the right of The Yellow Wall exit. This P2 is an open project if anyone has the time, courage and guns to send it. (See recent pictures added to The Yellow Wall for some details of this straight finish)


Same start as The Yellow Wall.

Rappel from P1 anchors of Scary Area to get down after P1. Alternatively, continue up on P2 of Scary Area, or traverse right to finish on P2 of Airy Aria (5.6) or P2 of Carbs and Caffeine (11a) - or better yet, find a new P2!


Standard Gunks rack with emphasis on small gear for P1. P1 is thin, with run out sections of 5.9/5.10- climbing, until better gear becomes available two thirds of the way up. Bring small nuts, including a critical #1 stopper that goes behind a small flake.
