Deers* leap is an old cliff of very old and weathered granite, many of its cracks are well rounded and in some spots the rock is loose, so be careful. There are several seperate ledges that are all part of the same line of rock that forms the ridge that is the leap. Any original climbing done at the leap was done on the main face by the pond. Over the years these ledges have received many visitors but most of these were picnicers or beer drinkers. Not much climbing development went on here for many years untill recently(since 1977).

Unfotunately the climbs here have degraded over the past years due to little traffic. Many of the routes have been re-claimed by lichen. Some or most of the boulder problems will need some cleanup. But if you can see past the lichen and have motivation to do some easy scrubbing it will be well worth it as all the routes present great positions and climbing on interesting horizontal features.
This area is broken up in to 3 of the major walls. The Main Face, Andy's Cliff (Middle Cliff), Porcupine Cliff.
- **CAUTION, THIS AREA IS KNOWN TO HAVE MANY TICKS ALL SEASON (DEER TICKS AS WELL). USE PRECAUTION, BUG SPRAY, LONG PANTS etc.***
