Leon is unusual for the area, consisting of amazing technical moves. Somewhat weather dependent too; if it's humid then the smaller holds will feel quite slimy. Start with fun, moderate moves until you reach a large undercling. Get a kneebar here to help hang on to the two small crimps above and then commit to a dynamic move to a beautiful, vertical pocket. Chalk up and then move left, smedging on slick feet, and using the tufa with your left hand. Grab the top of the tufa as a sloper (key), use a small crimp, and then bump to a gaston with the right hand. High-step your left and then finish the crux sequence with a dynamic move to a not so good rounded edge. This route reminded me a lot of Smith Rock! A must do.
On the opposite side of Greek Gift. "Leon" is written at the start.
