    Talking Video: Update

    I've gotten a lot of requests for a map of LOST after posting this original video. Well since there really isn't one ... there are GPS waypoints for critical turns ... but along the cliffs the reflective signal issue plays havoc with the best of units.

    SOOOOO ... here's a response video with an animated line detail showing the route mixed in with clips from the original video. Should help clear up where the scramble actually goes and were shots from the video are located.

    Hope this helps answer a lot of those questions for anyone wishing to make this bushwhack. It's definitely a winter hike ... in the summer the heat along that wall is unbelieveable. It receives direct sunshine most of the day. Briars and snakes at face level ... well ... winter is much nicer time to "get" LOST.
