You really canít look at Loverís Leap without noticing Hogsback. It stands like a vanguard in front of the Leap. Though not high or as steep as the Leap, it none the less has merit. The hardest climb there is 5.9 and even that one is a variation on another climb. It is an excellent place to take beginners or to practice trad leads without too much exposure.
There is a trail leading from the campgrounds to the front of Hogsback or you can follow the trail to the Leap and when you reach the fallen tree and stump on the left hand side of the trail, you can follow the trail leading to the backside of Hogsback and approach it that way.
