jun on Bear Hug sit.

UDOT will ticket cars parked on the south side of the canyon opposite the Secret Garden bouldering area. MORE INFO >>>


Start with your left hand on a sidepull/undercling and right hand on a crimp. Move up to a right hand finger stack and then a big move with the left hand to a sloper. Bear hug (literally) your way to the top.
