4 out of 5 stars Wild

The first pitch (from tombstone ledge) sucks ass. Don't bother. Start from the main ledge system.

A really full on Lovers Leap classic. Wild and exposed adventure climbing the whole way. Mostly solid rock and pretty clean considering it hardly ever sees climbers. This route has been retrobolted to the max. It's totally safe for a solid .10+ climber to go at. The crux roof sports a bolt which protects the lieback moves really well though it's not really needed. The bolt before the second roof on the second pitch is totally not needed as bomber gear can be found the entire way.

Really reccomend this route as a must do for Lovers Leap.

Crux roof is pretty buryl and preplexing to get into, but then lends its self to cool positive lieback moves.
