A varied four pitch climb that goes to the highest point on the Leap. Follows the huge right facing corner just to the right of Traveller's Buttress. First pitch is in the corner. The second pitch sneaks out on the left face leading to the base of a chimeny. The third pitch climbs the chimeny, traverses 5.7 past a fixed piton, and then hops on a beautiful exposed arete. The fourth pitch is basic and can be avoided with a 60m rope.

Great climb! Stopped here on the way to Yosemite as a warm up area. The second pitch was amazing climbing up the exposed arÍte and led to and awesome belay ledge. Because we didnít want to do the hike again to get our bags, we brought our packs on the climb. The only tricky part with the bags was the chimney. We hoisted them to just above the chimney move and then combined Pitch 3 and 4 for a runout finish.
