BETA PHOTO: Mislaid Rock, the center formation at Lost Rocks.


This is the center of three formations roughly .5 miles SE of Ryan campground. A large "half dome" shaped boulder sits at the top right with a striking Flake/pillar running straight up the center distinguishable by a 20 ft crack running straight up the top section of the flake. Tribal Line (5.7) takes the line up the center just to the left of the "half dome" shaped boulder. The backside of the formation gets sun in the morning to early afternoon and holds the climbs Zucchini Crack (5.8) and The Downclimb (5.4). Both climbs are must do's if in the area, the rock quality is pristine! A soon to be popular area sporting a stout 5.9 offwidth.
