Fun climb  Sucess!

Led the third pitch. Nice rock, fun route. Had planned to also climb Pop Bottle but thunderclouds were on the horizon as we topped out Deception.

First Leap lead  Sucess!

Tim led pitches 1 and 3, leaving me the middle one. I'd never led harder than 5.6ish trad before that... I was surprised to find a thin 5.9ish section, but pleased that my sport climbs on Safe Harbor's 5.9 & .10 slabs had taught me what to do there! Great introduction to Lover's Leap.

Nice warm up  Sucess!

Not as bad as I thought..we did the 5.9 finger crack variation

Cool  Sucess!

Loved the friction traverse. Spiced up the whole bit.

in the dark  Sucess!

started really late and hiked out in the dark. Found the flake and the cam. Removed it because the cord it just about completely severed to the core. And found a rattlesnake on the approach. All in all a great day!

Deceiving  Sucess!

I followed someone else.

Gentle route  Sucess!

A great route for a beginning trad climber like myself to learn on. One of the first routes at lover's leap that I climbed and other than getting off route a bit and running into a bit of 5.9 runout that I had to get around and retrieve gear from, it went smoothly.

Good stuff  Sucess!

Stop by the Leap for a few hours for the first time. Why did it take me so long to get there!?
Fun climb and a good way for me to get back into leading after an eight month hiatus. We tried to make the route two pitches but failed due to a couple of route finding errors and a nasty detached block that I chose to climb around instead of over. I took a 5.7 variation near the top - enjoyable and runout dihedral that with lots of face climbing workarounds.
Climbed with Etsuko and Rob on a glorious summer day.
We shall be back to the Leap soon!

Deception  Sucess!

Followed Etsuko and Misha on Deception - their first time at the Leap, and my first time on the Hogsback. It was ... deceiving, but fun :)

My first multipitch since I broke my foot - quite painful, but that's life.

CAUTION: We encountered a large detached flake about 150' up, just above a fixed cam (badly mangled).
