Through the wonders of the interweb and social media I hooked up with an old friend from back in the day (Kevin Jones) for some climbing and camping. Kevin is still killing it harder than ever and it was great to catch up (literally hadn't seen each other in 18+ years).

Hogsback is a feature in the popular Lover's Leap climbing area that we splitboard in during the winter. It was sweet to see this side of it and climb right next to the snowboard lines. Thanks KJ!

October has been great in Northern California, leaving the trailhead with only a couple hours of light left

Unknown climbers on the east wall (100 feet from the snowboard lines)...hope to be able to climb this someday!

Back to climbing, KJ

We topped out at dusk, enjoyed a couple sport beers, and watch some climbers on east wall finish their climb (see headlight on the left)

Thanks for the TR BC...I love the leap and unfortunately don't make it there too often anymore.

Have climbed most of the mellower classics but have never split on Hogsback - something to look forward to.

Nice pics! Miss my days climbing and need to get back out on the rock. Kevin Jones was a beast back in the day - looks like he still is!

Awesome TR. Hogsback was my very first multi-pitch lead! Been too long since I've climbed, let alone got out to the Leap!
