If you are lucky enough to own the original Sams Throne guidebook, maybe you have seen or top-roped the line "Quantum Leap". I never did, because I thought it looked contrived and more effort than it was worth to set up the TR.
In the fall of 07, under the encouragement of others, I lead this route and redirected the line to add more climbing, and bolted anchors for those still wanting to TR this dynamic and wild ride. It is the "Love Slave" of Sams- very similar to the route of that name at HCR, down river- maybe a little more sustained.


when you take the fork upon reaching the throne, QL is to the left 100 feet in a cave.


4 bolts + anchors
