Sunset on the Traveler Buttress
This the largest formation at the Leap at 500ft. For a long day, you can link a route on the lower buttress to a multi-pitch climb on the main wall. The classic climbs on this wall include Corrugation Corner 5.7, Traveler Buttress 5.9, Hospital Corner 5.10a, and Tombstone Terror 5.10c. For information on getting to an Alcove where you can then climb the excellent climbs: 2nd pitch of "North Country", 2nd Pitch of "North Face", "Absolutely Brilliant", "Dragon Back" and a 5.9 Off Width See the Beta Picture below.
You can climb a route on the lower buttress or follow the trail along the right side of the buttress to the base.

: ... : Main Wall
A varied four-pitch climb that goes to the highest point on the Leap. Follows the huge right facing corner just to the right of Traveler's Buttress. First pitch is in the corner. The second pitch sneaks out on the left face leading to the base of a chimney. The third pitch climbs the chimney, traverses 5.7 past a fixed piton, and then hops on a beautiful exposed arete. The fourth pitch is basic and can be avoided with a 60m rope....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

What direction is the Main wall facing? I'll be there in mid July and I am sure we will be chasing shade. Just hoping to plan out what we will be able to climb in the shade and when. Thanks!!
