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; belay and 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"

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