Hogsback and Hogwild

When you get up and close with Lover's Leap there are a number of walls and sub walls and secluded buttresses, but from afar, there is the Main Wall and Hogsback. Hogsback offers great beginner's climbs with a few such as Knapsack Crack (5.4) and Deception (5.6) being many climbers first trad leads. Generally Hogsback is broken into two main areas, the North face and Hogwild, although there are also a few rarely climbed routes on the south face as well. The climbs on the north face are mostly multipitch trad climbs while at Hogwild they are typically one pitch sport or mixed climbs.
