This is an absolutely beautiful splitter on perfect granite. It starts out fists and goes quickly into offwidth, and it's on a slightly overhanging wall. Probably a bit of a sandbag, but a good one to do if you want an introduction into the harder stuff because it has everything from stacks to classic offwidth wiggling. This is a must for anyone interested in Vedauwoo's offwidths.


This route is actually nowhere near the Third Lost Wall. It's actually miles to the east. Nonetheless, if coming from I-80, park as for the directions here (700i) or take a right at the next road and park at the end of it. In either case, walk to the northeast side of the field that sits generally to the east of the parking area. At the end of the field, cross the stream and pick up a trail shortly thereafter. Follow the trail, taking any right-trending forks. After about a mile or more, you will come to a spike of rock sitting on a hilltop with a sharp drop off on one side. Only The Lonely is on the clean north face of this spike.


A #5 and #6 Friend, plus the green or more preferably the blue Big Bro or equivalent for the top section. Gear anchor, walk off.

An easy approach for this, although longer, is to park at the Lower Blair parking lot. Head through a green cattle gate, and just stay on the main 1 track/2 track trail. You'll pass through a barbed wire gate, and this climb is shortly after that gate on the right.

It looks like there is a 2-bolt anchor at the top of this climb.
