Description 

This is a very nice, isolated wall with a small collection of very high quality climbs. The approach is a bit of a drag, but the trek is well worth it. The rock is some of the best granite around, and each of the lines is one of the better climbs at its grade around. Save this one for a calm and warm day, as it is one of the most exposed areas in Vedauwoo. All the climbs start off of a ledge that requires a short and easy fifth class "scramble", so plan accordingly.

Getting There 

Take the Blair Wallis Road (705) starting from I-80 and follow it to road 705i. Park at the end of this road and hike down into the valley, picking up a faint trail. (Note that this valley is very boggy from spring until well into the summer, so be prepared to deal with wet feet. You also have to cross at least one stream.) At the fork at the end of the valley, which is a three way, take the middle fork. Follow this trail through a gate as it meanders uphill into a valley. From here, you will see a small dome on the left and rising behind it will be a large talus field. From here, the trail dives to the south, so continue off trail, through the aspens and up the valley to the far end of the talus field. At this point, The Lost Wall will come into view at the top of the talus field, so head up there. The total approach time is probably around forty five minutes to an hour and is gently uphill much of the way.

Lost in Space 5.11- 6c 22 VIII+ 22 E3 5c  Wyoming : Vedauwoo : The Lost Wall
This is a very nice finger crack that begins and ends with a bit of face climbing. Though the pro might look a bit thin from the ground, it is bomber and more than sufficient so don't be shy to go for it. After pulling over onto the first shelf, finish by climbing the last part of Lost of the Mohican. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming

If anyone could provide some additional directions for this crag, that would be great. Specifically, is it near Third Lost Wall? Is it due-east of Lower Blair? I am terrible at directions, but I thought I found this crag, but based on the 1 or 2 photos I can find of the climbs, I was nowhere near it! If anyone can shoot me a pm, I'd appreciate it. Thanks. I was hoping to at least post some photos of these routes.
