(Bear Mountain Slab?) Right-hand line on the first slab
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. 5.6
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.

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