Description 

Start on the block just left of Bearís Choice. Follow the discontinuous crack system towards the middle of three small trees. When comfortable, stem/traverse into the upper right-slanting crack (the crux), above the rightmost tree. Mixed face and crack climbing leads to a large belay ledge, same as for Bearís Choice. To descend, either scramble left to the anchor for Ursa Major and rappel, or head over and right, using the south face descent.

small nuts to 2" cams, gear anchor
