Novice but fun hike we took with our dog. Ground was sloppy...trail was concealed by a bit of snow and ice, but we made it and found a dry spot for lunch and photos.
This is one legendary spot. Royal Robbins and other icons of rock. I never made it here back in the days I went vertical, but hoofing it up to the top on the cattle trail today I thought of one fella I climbed with in high school. Eric S. Oakland. Loved by all. A natural athlete, good at everything he did. Larger than life, until a car crash his senior year took his legs from him.
slowly making my way to the top of all these routes. started on knapsack crack and recently did corrugation corner. cant wait to try out some of these 5.10+ routes
My brother and I were driving home after a trip up Jobs Peak and with an hour of daylight left - decided to take the easy hike from Camp Sacramento over to the top of the 'Leap. Great views, well worth the easy effort. TR is HERE.
Climbed Travelers Buttress. Great climb and such an amazing area! Will definitely be back! The rock was just too good!
I have climbed here a few times. It is sweet. Much climbing to be had and the bouldering is good if you are in to that sort of thing. The campground is really nice too.
I think we got off route a bit on the second pitch. The moves seemed more like .9 than .8
many routes on Hogsback
Climbed a bunch of routes on East Wall, Hogsback, Dear John/Lower buttress
Love this place too! several trips from Bay area days
surrealistic pillar and corrugation corner, haystack and bears reach come to memory - unreal rock and great vibe.
Followed Dirk on surrealistic pillar, then I was thwarted by the 2nd pitch off-width of Traveler Buttress after Dirk did a successful lead. Beautiful rock and exciting climbs.
East wall was my first ever trad lead. Since I have visited the leap many other times for routes including Corrugation and East Crack.
Way steep for the grade, but juggy! Climbed The Farce and Bear's Reach on my first and only day so far at the Leap. Fun climbing, advisable to warm up to the climbing, as dike hikin' is different!
Did the East Wall, very skeered the whole time!
East Wall and East Crack with a couple friends.
This was my first real rock climb. I'm practicing for a film coming up and I really want to look like a rock climber. We climbed the route "Harvey Wallbangers -- Right." They told me it is rated 5.7, whatever that means. I actually climbed it! I did fall a couple of times, but I still made it. :)
Learned to climb multipitch here. Amazing routes on enjoyable rock. Wish I had to time to climb here more often.
Climbed many times/routes with Peter Green and Michael Robert. Great area for multi-pitch instruction...typically less than 90 minutes from my front door doesn't hurt either!
