Overview
This climb is great for first time Loverís Leap climbers. The route ascends 300 feet of clean, moderate, and well-protected terrain. Except for a few 5.5 moves around the second belay, the route is mostly 5.0-5.4 and is a perfect follow for a first time climber. Climb the route entirely as a face climb or use some of the cracks to practice jamming. The last two pitches link with one 60m rope
