[Shape-Up, 2 kb]The easiest climb in the Leap gives good climbing up the groove line right of the smooth brown wall. From the top of the lower groove, tricky moves back left gain the upper corner to the right of the large roof. Follow this, with care, to the top. © ROCKFAX

Bloody hard, greasy start over some ankle snapping boulders, with hard to find small gear. Not even much fun after that, with some loose rock. About 5m of good climbing in total. Next time Beast is busy, I'll prusik out.

Didn't enjoy this route. It was wet and greasy and horrible, and to think i was gonna try and lead it. I reckon e2, especially if greasy.
catblack - 2nd dog - 16/Aug/11 with Andy Barker

The tide was nearly in so I took a belay a few metres up so Cat could avoid a wetting! Seemed every bit the E2 it's given in the CC guide. I also thought it was massively over-rated.

Felt easier than Beast yesterday but hard for warming up and confidence was low after a bad start to the day. Quite intricate and sustained in places but very enjoyable

Same as most people the fisrt route in the leap. Bold start with some ankle snapping boulders below. Enjoyable sustained climbing throughtout but nothing hard and out of character. I can see why it gets E2 though, reduces the number of people having to jug back up the rope.

First route in the Leap. Found the first few moves hard for 5b and insecure due to polish. Gets better higher up but on the whole not as good as The Beast from the Undergrowth and definitely not a good warm up.
Misha - 2nd O/S - 29/Aug/10 with Phil

Bottom is sooo polished and was damp too. Very worrying stiff few moves to an RP at about 3m. Easy then to the mud and grass at the top.

E1 I reckon as easier than Beast. Quite nice moves in the middle but rest is a bit rambly. Made harder by having to climb the first bit with sea foam coating both shoes!!
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 16/May/09 with Humble and Emily

Ben1983 - Lead O/S - 03/May/09

probably just merits E2 as start is quite bold and theres some spaced gear above. overall pretty steady though. the crux (moving left from groove) has nice moves off the good pocket. easy (for me at least) to get a bit spreadeagled here before working out best method. great route with lovely incuts at the top
