lovers Leap is a sea cliff of basalt "organ pipes" It's dramatic location with the sea crashing under a natural rock bridge 150m below gives it a unique atmosphere. A number of the lines here exceed 30m, all but a handful of the approximatly 30 lines are above grade 20(5.10a) This is a trad crag though plenty of the lines are mixed. a rack with plenty of off set wires and small cams is required. Many of the lines have double bolt anchors
