BETA PHOTO: stone free viewed from the middle of the main rock...


Starting on the right side of the main rock of the bear, this is the last climb on the 1st pitch. Crux is a traversy move between the second and third bolts that's more balance than power. Beware the the prominent roof above the 3rd bolt is hollow, and is REALLY loose on the right side. This section is run out, but is probably only 5.8 or so.


5 bolts to fixed anchors

Don't clip that piece of history. There's a bolt within reach of the pin stack.

There is a left and right way to do the crux using different holds. Both about 11+-12A. Excellent technical route. Bolts well placed. Solid rock, except for hollow roof.

Really fun! Definitely not 12a. If Body Snatchers is 12a than Stone Free is 11d at most. Definitely must do.
