The mighty corner of the Leap, Corrugation Corner. 5.7 3-5 pitches
One of the best 5.7’s multi-pitch climbs at Lover’s Leap if not one of the best anywhere. This climbs has it all. Stemming, crack climbing, arete climbing, roofs, traverses, and a Chimney!
Pitch One. Start up the corner, stemming and dike climbing up to the roof. Traverse left under the roof with an optional belay here, or continue up and to the right, now traversing the top of the roof to a nice belay ledge.
Pitch Two. Go straight up the corner until the crack widens. Make an upward left traverse to the arete. Climb the fantastic and exposed arete until an easy wide crack leads to the infamous “Beach the Whale” move. Belay on the ledge
Looking down from the second belay.
Pitch Three. Head up the short and fun chimney, step out right and up to a fix pin. Make exposed moves over to the corner to the right. Head up the corner to a small roof. Just after the roof another optional belay appears, or continue up the easy dikes to the top. Classic Lover’s Leap dike hiking!
