This one is fun and has several variations possible. Staying mostly on the left side is a bit more of a challenge. Kind of a pain to rig an anchor though. Would be nice to discover a bolted anchor up there one day. I think it's a nice contrast to the style of the other bears.

There are now bolted anchors at the top of this route!! They were just put in a week or two ago i believe!
