Climb the crack in the center of the Practice Face to its end. Move up and left past a notch to a small ledge, then up to the top. A variation (also 5.4) moves up and right from the end of the crack to the top.

A Variation of this climb follows the main crack until it ends before the overhangs, then follows another crack up to the right. Ivy Leaf shares a double bolted chain anchor with "Triple Overhang" (route to the left of Ivy Leaf). However, there is a different double bolted chain anchor for the variation.


At the base of an obvious crack about 10 feet right of the left edge of the Practice Face.


Standard Rack (PG).

First climb at Ralph Stover (High Rocks) and boy, I'll tell ya, it's something else. Plan on making a comeback soon.
