Climbs up a thin crack strait up the center of a white water streak to the right of Psychedelic Tree. The line is good with solid pro all the way to the top. Climb the first pitch to the ledge and belay here. The second pitch moves out right up a white splitter crack then back left into the dihedral. Pull up a steep section onto an interesting looking slab, then up a short corner to the anchors. You'll find two fixed pins at the top but save a # 2 and 3 Camalot for the belay. Edited to add: this route was recently cleaned out by a party who did an excellent job of removing loose rock, vegitation and dirt. The route is now as clean as any on East Wall. Thanks! Two bolted rap anchors were also established at the belays by this party w/out permission from F.A. party. They are unnecessary and were placed for there convenience only. The F.A. party stated that though unfortunate and unnenessisary, the damage is already done and they should remain. Please! Lets keep retro bolting out of the Leap.

Descent Options:

Walk off or rap w/ 2 60m ropes.

3 out of 5 stars Not real hard, but still fun

I had a good time climbing this route, very well protected route with very minor loose rock.

3 out of 5 stars A lost classic

Its not lost, just hiding under some bushes and dirt. If this route were clean it would be as popular as any on East Wall.
