This is the first 4 bolts of the Leper, and makes a good warm up for the harder routes in the cave.

Start up a steep wall with long moves between mostly good holds with a couple of underclings. The crux comes near the transition to the roof, holding, clipping from and moving off of a right angling crack feature. Move off of the crack into an undercling and out the roof through some pods with holds in them.


This route is the third route from the right side of the cave and is just right of a seam feature through the start.


4 bolts with fixed chain draws.
