Lover's Leap Seasonal Clean-Up says, "Lover’s Leap boasts some of the countries best moderate granite.  According to Royal Robbins in his 1976 Tahoe Guide, “With the lone exception of Tahquitz Rock, Lover’s Leap has the best selection of concentrated free climbs in California... No one cliff even in Yosemite has Lover’s Leap’s concentration.. with such quality and variety.” Yosemite Valley offers better long routes, scenery, and history but Lover’s Leap has more easy and moderate multi-pitch climbs. Unlike the Valley where to climb three multi-pitch 5.8 climbs you would have to drive miles to three separate cliffs, at Lover’s Leap you usually just walk 100 feet in either direction."

Volunteers will meet at 10 a.m. at the campground.  Some food will be provided but it's best to bring snacks for refueling between trail work.  Afterwords, pro-climber Kevin Jorgenson will be giving a slide show.  Stop by and check out this great event.
