Ascent Trip Report

Spring, summer and fall are the best, in the summer climb early to avoid the hot sun, and in the spring and fall, climb late to enjoy the sun. The Leap is infrequently climbed in the winter. There are some ice routes there, the most famous being Eeyore's Fantasy, W.I. 4-5, which is Eeyore's Ecstasy most of the time, when it's not iced up. Also sometimes done are Lovers Chimney and East Gully.
