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.

This route starts out as a steep face climb then goes over a small overhang. Above the overhang make some great stemming moves using the feature on the left (this feature is part of the 3rd pitch of North Face) then up and right to the top anchors of Dragon Back. Sure blows Powerlust away. Full on sport route with a tricky crux but not too powerful of moves. A little pumpy through sections and not too many great rests. A must do on the leap ticklist. This is a very good well protected classic f...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

that L to R list is correct, except that Absolutely Billy is to the right of Yankee Dog.
Also, it might be worthwhile to add another area, Tombstone Ledge? RIP, Tombstone Terror, Silly Willy Crack, and Boothill are all down there, as is P1 of Travellers.
Thanks for cleaning this up!
Also, Vanishing Point, Craven Image and 3rd Stone from the Sun are on the West Wall.

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!!
