This was the major surprise for Tad. I hired a guide to take us rock climbing at Lovers Leap for two days. This will be our first time doing multi-pitch routes. As well as learning how to trad climb. Trad climbing is where you put protection in the cracks. The guide took us to the front side of the Hogsback, which is a long, slabby hump of granite about 400 feet high located just north of Lovers Leap. Once we climb to the top and we can get an unrestricted view of the formidable cliffs. The North face looks down on the American River and Highway 50 (unfortunately). Thought the central walls located behind, are secluded and you would think youre in the middle of nowhere, and that people are hundreds of miles away.
