Description

To find the route, stay on the Bear Creek Trail past the first major rock formation (Bear Creek Spire) until the trail is only about 30ft. above the creek. The S. Dino Egg has a slabby east face with a large chimney (Hatch) and on its SW side, a steep face with large huecos on the left side. Scramble up easy 5th class terrain via an obtuse dihedral to get to a nice ledge with several large boulders, below Sneak Preview.

Overhanging for the first 1/2 of the route, then vertical. Conglomerate sandstone with little pockets and knobs makes a great finger and hand workout. About 70ft. to the chains. Stick-clipping the first bolt is definitely recommended. The moves up to the bolt are not easy and you're looking at a 15ft nasty groundfall on boulders if you blow it. It seems other people had the same idea since there's a small collection of 5ft branches at the bottom of the route.

Protection

5 bolts to two chains.
