This is the four bolt (brown hangers) direct start to the Bear Arete. Climb steep seams to a ledge. Lower off chains at base of Bear Arete, or continue up that pitch (you may want to skip the fourth bolt to reduce rope drag).
Start just right of Stone Free and left of Smash-n-Grab at the right edge of the lower cliff.

I thought it was a good route, but pretty tough for the grade. Felt more in the .11+ range?!?!?!?
