The guide book (NC Select) for this climb calls it a jug haul...I didn't see many jugs. It isn't hard but it isn't jugs either. I remember some "thin" 5.7 - 5.8 moves as the crux.
Located on the tree ledge above Bear Hunt. It is the second "bolted" line. Look for a slight roof to pull before clipping the first bolt.
Bolts and a "light" rack. Tree with slings, rap rings. You will also need TWO ropes to back to the tree ledge. The other option is an intermediate rap on a tree with slings, off to climber left, in a gully.

When I led this a couple of years ago, I had it mixed up with Gift Certificate. This is left around a corner from Gift Certificate. It's definitely a decent line and a fun lead.

The intermediate rap tree doesn't instill much confidence, should be suspect.

Climbed this yesterday and was able to reach a block at the base on a 70 w/ rope-stretch.

I couldn't reach the ledge with a seventy meter rope. So depending on brand and rope stretch, seventy meters may not be sufficient. I was almost lowered off through the ATC and dropped due to inexperience on my part and my partner's part. I would have taken a 15 foot fall to the ledge. It is another hundred or so feet to the base of the cliffline from the ledge. It could have been serious.

You can absolutely reach bottom with a 70m. You rap down to the left where the water streak usually is and stop at the tree, untie then step down to the ledge. I've done it 6 times now with different ropes.. Always tie knots in the ends of rap ropes, but yes, this can be done on one 70m.
