You really can't look at Lover's Leap without noticing Hogsback. It stands like a vanguard in front of the Leap. Though not high or as steep as the Leap, it nonetheless has merit. There is much to climb under 5.9, so it is an excellent place to take beginners or to practice trad leads without too much exposure.
Hogwild, on the far west side, is approached by a wooded trail from the campground.

Climb up dikes with the occasional friction move past bolts to a two bolt anchor.This is a newer route and has not seen a lot of traffic, and is somewhat grungy. The quality might get a little better as it cleans up.(There is a second pitch that has some bolts and gear placements. This pitch does not get done often, and I don't know the anchor situation. if you do, please comment.)...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
