Warning Access Issue: 2023 Raptor Closure at Lover's Leap DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

This is one of the finest crack lines at the Leap. It is located in the center of the East Wall. It should not be hard to pick out, since it follows a continuous crack system for 400ft.

P1: This is the best pitch. Follow a straight in crack in a shallow LF dihedral for 130ft. The first 100ft are continuous, but rests can be found on dikes. Not a great "first 5.9" - should be solid at the grade. Take care placing protection in the first 30 feet. 

P2: Continue up the crack system which turns right facing. Belay before a roof.

P3: Short pitch. Climb the roof and descend to the left on a well marked trail.
