Lost Eagle Pinnacle, Wind River Range. From a campsite on Slide Lake, Rick Horn, Joe Larson, Dave Eland, Pat Paddon, and I made the first ascent of this 2000-foot pinnacle on July 30. We ascended by the easiest route we could find and this reached about F6 in difficulty. We climbed up a couloir to the west and south of the pinnacle until it ended in a series of walls. After roping up we made a 200-foot traverse onto the west face of the pinnacle and then climbed directly to the top in about 6 leads. The descent was by a series of three hanging rappels into the couloir on the south side of the pinnacle.
