<< The Big Apple < Golden Delicious | Easy Skanking > The Lover's Leap >>
A significant route from the early 80s. It is now climbed in one pitch as an easy 8a. A few wires are required for the easy middle section. The first pitch (a good 7c+ in its own right) is fingery and bouldery, and the upper section provides a nice contrast, being powerful and sustained in a great position but quite loose in places.
