CRAGS and the Leap:


CRAGS and the Access Fund have worked together on many Adopt-a-Crag cleanup events at Lover’s Leap. We have done everything from trail building and camp site maintenance, to the installation of a falcon information kiosk. Over the years, we have formed strong ties with the Forest Service, and acted as liaisons for the local climbing community. We have helped and partnered with the Strawberry Lodge and Strawberry Station, to foster strong local ties to the surrounding community.

  • Your first trad lead on Knapsack Crack (5.4),
  • Corrugation Corner (5.7),
  • Bear’s Reach (5.7),
  • The Line (5.9),
  • Surrealistic Direct (5.10b),
  • God of Thunder (5.9/5.10c),
  • Hospital Corner (5.10a),
  • Powerlust (5.11-),
  • Respect the trails,
  • Pack out your trash,
  • Watch out for rattlesnakes.

  • Park illegally
  • Leave food out unattended
  • Make noise after 10pm
  • Camp in the off-season
