Hospital Corner, Lover's Leap, East Wall 5.10a
Avg time to climb route: 1.5 hours
Approach time: 25 minutes
Descent time: 30 minutes
Number of pitches: 2
Height of route: 200'
OverviewThis is the best 5.10a at Loverís Leap. The first pitch is good but the exquisite steep corner on the second pitch defines the route. Rather than having one hard crux, the crux pitch drains you with consistently steep and powerful hand jams and lieback moves. Good stemming technique is critical to keep your forearms from exploding. Conserve energy down low as the route gets harder up high. Either bring one 70m rope or two 50m ropes to rappel this climb.
