Rockfax Description
This is probably the most popular route in the Leap, it starts at the big flake/groove left of the smooth black wall. Step right from the top of the flake and pull over a bulge. Follow a line of holds up rightwards to a roof. Step back left and make a l-o-n-g pull over this to reach good holds above. Shorties may want to use the two alternative sequences which don't need a reach. Follow the wall above with care, keeping slightly right. © Rockfax

Second time lucky after tide came in yesterday! Busy day in the Leap, felt nervous and clumsy, maybe due to being on the easiest route there, or maybe due to having waited so long. Found the climbing straightforward- using long reach- and safer than I remembered from seconding it - I placed gear mid crux. Nice route, would do again.

First route at the leap. An inspiring place. Guide says e2 5c and I'd agree. Had to throw for the jug at the crux protected by a poor cam so it felt bold. Wasn't a restful position either to move off from. It might have felt different with a fresher pair of arms & better technique. Another excellent climb.

First visit to the leap. Bit of a soft touch, felt easier than Shape Up.

Bit more run out than I remembered it, but short, sharp cruxes. The munchkins found the long reaches hard work...

Tried the direct method on the crux this time. Not too tricky if you find the hold and not as reachy as its reputation suggests.

Alan James - UKC and UKH 15/May/05 Lead

Found a cunning left-hand method to do the crux using a tiny undercut and avoiding any long reaches.
