Description

Unprotected steep slab (crux) leads to a bolt about 15' up and a slanting ledge system a little higher. Continue up the face above past one more bolt and then cut right to finish in a hand/fist crack. Gear belay and walk off or rap from anchors atop Ursa Major.

Location

Located on the face between Bear Essence on the left and Ursa Major on the right.

Protection

2 bolts, gear to 3.5"

Agree that the start is a little stiff. Have a spotter for the moves to the first bolt. Aug 15, 2011

Really good face climb - the upper crack is practically 4th class. That start is hard, balancy and crimpy; definitely harder than 5.8, and that's before the first bolt! Upper crux leaving the ledge can be done a couple ways but either way it's more fun and interesting climbing! Sep 2, 2009
