Start of The Bear.


Climb past an awkward overhanging start to get into the wide crack. Offwidth/lieback your way up to an intermediate ledge (tree with slings). Continue past some loose blocks and up varied crack climbing to another tree with slings at the top of the cliff.


This is on the far left side of the Bedrock area. The wide crack is fairly obvious. Start off a large boulder at the base.


Standard East A rack plus #4, #5, #6 Camalots.

The tree at the top is hurting. This could really use a new anchor.
