Sporty first section as you've just got to press on and not wait around getting pumped. Great stuff though. I've taken the flash as there were a couple of pieces of gear already in that I was retrieving for some other guys.

Maybe a bad route choice - I was not prepared to gamble a deck out from the crux on a wire I couldn't see. Rested to check it out, it looked ok and so I continued. Hats off to people who took the risk.

Fantastic route... to second! Scary lead (and belay!) tho. Great moves throughout, amazing holds. Getting off the black ledge is a bit of a thinker!

On a few pieces of Pete's gear after he fell off from the first crozzles, definetly helped keep the pump down but they are sinker (i'd have been alright). With beta for the next gear I had a great experience getting really commited. There's another 5c/6a move off the ledge for those of 5'7 or below. Very happy.

Amazing. Have wanted to do this for ages and am so psyched my first E5 was in the Leap, my favourite crag. Lower wall is just perfect, with a heart in mouth cruxy section to the ledge. Make sure you get the blind wire in well (email me if you want the beta) Hard but well protected move off the ledge if you are short into a bold but steady groove. Phwoar. ***

Quite bold! I was much more scared on this than on Minotaur, hung around for a while getting pumped fiddling with wires.

Took the slow and pumpy approach on the lower wall, as I wasn't as happy initially with the gear for the runout to the ledge as I expected to be. More E5 than the Minotaur. The lower wall especially is brilliant.

Felt a bit harder than Bloody Sunday so probs E5. 3*.

Definitely worth E5, and three stars! The first section is just brilliant, the climbing is so absorbing and there's just enough gear to keep it safe but spicey, then a pumpy top section. I found the crux to be moving out left from the black crozzly ledge, felt pretty committing without any footholds.

Pumpy & very enjoyable. Very glad I managed to place the crucial wire before the run-out to the ledge as the only other bit was a crap RP.

Sick, lower wall is off the hook funkiness, middle is a nice preamble and top groove is superb; the Leap is where its at!

Seconded steve a few months prior but with maximum dogging, could barely climb it then. Also gained gear beta off Gareth H just before setting off, a blind but bomber rock 4 high and left of the hand rail before moving onto the ledge. delicate and unpredictable move leaving the black right hand ledge, an array of decent wires protects great climbing up the upper groove. F6c and not that bold, but pumpy on the lower wall if not taken quickly.
