Gina's Surprise is route that is farthest to the right on the Pear. The line is the obvious grey dike that shoots up for approx. 150-160 feet. This line is not advisable to climb with gear for a fall on the first pitch would be a disaster. There are a couple shallow horns that could be used. The second pitch is a short lie back crack that goes up for about 70-80'. Descent right from there when crack runs out.

This can be climbed to the top of the formation in 5 pitches.


Well, first pitch, none. Second pitch, larger stoppers and med cams.

Kid Friendliness

It has enough features and short-enough traverses to allow a shorter (7-8 year old) to ascend without excessive difficulty.
