Description 

Funky flaring wide crack furthest to the right. This is definitely a Lover's testpiece. .10 doesn't get any harder than this at the Leap. This route is not a warm up.....it's a goal.

Very hard for the grade. I felt like it was more like .10c at least.

Awkward is the word for this climb. Harder than your typical lover's leap 5.10a.

This was a wild lead. The crack is very flaring and doesn't lead to full confidence in the gear.
