Description

One of the more aesthetic and exposed routes at Foster Falls, Bear Mountain Picnic is fairly stiff for the grade. Try to find someone with a camera to go up the hill and get a picture of you profiled against the sky as you lead the arete!

Starting on the ledge below a roof, stem off of boulders until you can clip the first bolt, then pull the overhang and make delicate moves out right to a ledge. From here, follow the pretty and slightly overhanging arete on good holds to the top.

Location

Jimmywood section; starts on a wide ledge above the trail, about 10' left of .38 Special.

Protection

6 bolts, bolted anchors.
