Main Wall

At 500' this is the tallest wall at the Leap although only a couple routes ascent the entire wall. One of those, a committing 5.9 called the Traveler Buttress is included in 'The 50 Classic Climbs of North America'.  The most popular climb at the Leap is Corrugation Corner, a wildly exposed 5.7 on fantastic rock. In addition to the classic trade routes you'll find numerous single pitch routes here and even a few sport routes, although they tend to be distractions while you're waiting.

Directions - Out of the parking lot get on the pony express trail and head east (left). After you pass the large campground boulders on your left the trail (and the lower buttress) will appear on your right. Head up to the buttress and either climb something on it or go around it (you can go either way).
