This small crag, visible from the Windy Saddle parking lot, sits in the forest above Clear Creek. Climbers who brave the long approach are rewarded with a clean, steep slab that gets morning sun and evening shade. The routes are still a bit green, but with traffic they'll clean up nicely. With its close proximity to the Beaver Brook trail, I wasn't too surprised to learn the crag had a historic name... Lover's Leap, of course.
From the Windy Saddle parking lot on Lookout Mountain, hike out the Lookout Mountain trail to the Beaver Brook trail 0.2 miles. Hike an additional 1.6 miles to the summit of the crag (just past the "B/B 1.5 sign"). To reach the base, hike past the summit and on down the trail to a faint switchback, climbers' trail, that leaves the main trail on the right and heads back to the bottom of the crag. Expect to take ~40 minutes.
A. BB Gun, 9, 1p, 60', bolts.
