The Leap

Kitty is back from UC Davis and the kids and I headed to Lover's Leap by Lake Tahoe for some climbing.

Campground had some spots and we did the Classic "Bear's Reach" after setting up camp. Beautiful evening. Up before it got too warm and over to climb "Hogwild" - and excellent face and crack climb. Rope got hung up on rappel and ended up leading it twice. By 1pm it was about 95F and we headed back to Santa Cruz. Saw two rattlesnakes on the trail.
