This is a splendid route. Too bad the name is not known. It is the 4th route from the left as you approach the bottom of the wall from the creek. This is known as the Bear Bottom Wall.

Start with steep moves thorugh a roof followed by a nice stance on a ledge. Solve the devious face climbing above and crack yet another roof at the top of the face. Finish by following the left edge of the roof that marks the top of the cliff. Overall, this climb is very clean and has some good rests. The climbing is just a little dirty on top, but it has good holds where it is dirty. This is definately a fantastic route. Enjoy.


11 quikdraws and a rope are all you need for this one.

Oops. I goofed. The name of the route should be Route Number 4, not Route Number 3, which was originally posted. It is the 4th route from the left at the bottom of the cliff.
