Overview
This is a great climb to introduce yourself to Loverís Leap and is one of the steeper 5.5s you will ever climb. However, it is sometimes difficult to find the 5.5 sections and many climbers inadvertently do 5.6 and even 5.7 moves. For this reason, it is recommended that you be a solid 5.6 leader with routefinding experience before starting up this climb. The climbing follows a network of large crack systems that you often stem around on large dikes. Climb the route in two 100-foot pitches or one long 60m pitch.
