Rockfax Description
14m. A pleasant climb meandering up the right-hand wall of the chimney. Start left of the arete and climb to a large ledge before stepping left and following a crack then the continuation groove to a rightward exit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The, wait for it, right side of Lover's Leap. Climb the short crack to the ledge, move right and climb up to where it is possible to move left to below a hanging crack above a scoop. Climb up the crack and take a v groove, then finish right of the capping boulder. Good climbing.

To make up for falling off its better known namesake. Nice varied route though.
