Climbs a slanting right-facing corner system to cracks and then moves slightly right to finish with the last two bolts on Leap Erickson. Gear belay at the top and walk down and right across the ledge above Leap Year Flake to reach rap anchors.

Mistakenly identified as "Look Before You Leap" (which is further right on this same rock) in the Joshua Tree West guidebook.


The right-facing corner between Faith Healer and Leap Erickson.


Gear to 2.5", 2 bolts (3/8)
