LOVED this route. Much preferred over ankles away (albeit a bit easier). Moves are fun, view is great, protection is great. Think the rock isn't as sharp as other places in the area. Sep 7, 2016

Felt this route was better than Ankles Away. Technically, Ankles Away is a better route, but Leonosphere is just more fun. Jan 28, 2015

Not sure why the site is showing this as 8 - it's definitely not. The opening moves are tricky/sequency but not that hard. Jun 29, 2014

Crux was reaching the 1st bolt. Easier and less sustained than Ankles Away to the right. (both rated 5.8 here) Fun route!! Apr 21, 2014

Opening moves are the crux, once that first bolt is clipped the rest is cruise. Mar 17, 2013

Fun climbing, although this formation seems to hurt the fingers more than others in the Hills. Dec 29, 2010

Not a bad route, good for a warm up.

Ran into Tim Spalding when we were here in October. May 15, 2010

What's with the bolt just above the horizontal? Not really needed. Apr 14, 2008

One-and-a-half stars. Not as Excellent as Ankles Away or Hoodgie. Still worthy. Mar 25, 2008
