Funny sort of route, deserves to be a classic. Took a while for me to commit to the top move, I tried it static a few times before really going for it. I took the flash as I knew enough about the notorious crux move and could see it all from the top.

Fun crux move and spicy but steady lower section. Lots of easy climbing between. The lower limit of the grade.

Took a while to commit on the crux. Another mega classic!

Felt scared moving back left into the groove above poor gear. Managed to chill out a bit up to the crux. The crux crimp was dripping, so dabbed as much chalk on it as i could, then went for it. Hand pinged off as i was touching the jug. felt robbed. think i would have done it if it was dry.

I'd put off doing this for a while because I was worried I wouldn't make the crux reach but I arrived down the Leap to find the route I'd wanted to do occupied, so I got on it anyway. The start was bolder than I expected! The finish wasn't too bad - just keep udging up for that pocket.
Joughton - Lead O/S - 26/Aug/13
A great route, fairly steady all the way, the top move did feel big. Can't really claim a true on sight as it's v.hard not to be aware of beta on these popular routes..

Scary start. Physically easy but very insecure moves high above the gear.
Crux was ok going with full commitment. The move is obvious and you can see the hold from the top of the crag :) Great route.

Alex Mason - Lead rpt - 04/May/13 with Jemma Powell
Fell off fairly low down; couldn't get crux move either; swung across onto the top of Head Hunter to finish up that
theotherpetehill - 2nd dog - 15/Jul/12 with Ross McKerchar
Easy but bold: got gripped. Latched the long reach with a single fingertip!

Seems I am the short. Use the crap crimp not the good one, slap for the sloper, set up then dyno for the jug! Class move! Super bold low down, though I guess not that hard.

Fran S8 - 2nd - 29/Aug/10
Sweet route, as is every route in the Leap! The crux reach is a monster, felt long even though I'm quite tall. But bomber gear and a really good handhold to go off - shorties, the challenge is set, would be a well good effort!

The leap is not in great condition at the moment, slimy rock and seeping cracks. Found this hard work and went off route above pancake before backing off with tail between legs....will come back!
Chad123 - AltLd dnf - 22/May/10 with Emily
Enjoyed to the crux, the the crimps were wet so had to yard off a finger lock, but couldnt make it, took a couple of wingers but ended up get a rope dropped. very reach dependent.
