Clown Car is a dinky but fun variation to Power Lust.

Just to the right of Power Lust is a filthy black runoff streak of dark lichen. Hidden under this lichen is a crack. However, the crack doesn't start until 25 feet or so off the main ledge.

Clip the first three bolts of Power Lust then step right into the Clown Car crack. The crack trends right almost touching Blue Cab before doglegging back to the left, and finishing at the Power Lust anchor. How convenient!

This climb is very similar in style and difficulty to the neighboring Blue Cab--lots of face moves on dikes with a crack for your gear. You don't need a 70m rope or a second line to get off this one though.


Main ledge. Shares start and anchor with Power Lust. There aren't many sport lines at the Leap, and there is a glamorous photo of Power Lust in most guidebooks, shouldn't be too hard to find.


Gear to 2". 3 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.
