Description

Small wall just off the Bear Canyon loop trail, a few miles away from Ortega Falls. Right next to a creek and shady much of the day. Ronnie St. Jean was the first to bring this area to Mt. Project, listing a route under Ortega falls and giving directions.

Getting There

Park in the bear canyon loop trail parking lot, located across the street from the candy store a couple miles down the road from the Ortega waterfall. From the north end of the lot hike north on the trail for about 5 min. you will see the route as you approach. you can't miss it, it's the first "view" you have on the trail. when you pass the hand rail veer right on a small climbers trail to the top of the climb. Rap down or take the trail along the creek down. (Credit: Ronnie St. Jean)
