Looking up Slab 1. The route goes up to the left ...
This is the obvious bolted line on Slab 1.
P1: Scramble up a short gully to a small ledge, and head straight up to a bolt, or begin climbing a crack and dihedral to the right. Continue straight up, placing some natural gear or clipping some bolts to the belay/rap station. This is a different set of anchors from the South Arete
P2: Climb up and to the right, into a series of steeper overlapping slabs (crux). Climb through these, placing protection and occasionally clipping a bolt, until you reach the upper face of the slab, where the rock becomes smoother and "slabby". This is a really fun pitch. Continue up to the 2-bolt rap station. 5.7+
A small rack up to a #3 or #4 Camalot.
Looking down the 1st pitch. Tyler and Katie enjoy...
Katie, keeping an eye on Tyler.

"Bear Mountain Picnic" was put up by Eric Zschiesche and Donna Quinn on lead, so it is a FA also.
