Description

Bear Cub follow bolts up a featured face (crimps, edges, slopers) to a ledge with trees. Watch the start - you have to step down a touch to start the route, and you a looking down a steep gully to the base of Fine Line, etc - if you fall you will tumble a bit.

NOTE: Many people get this route mixed up with Bear Hunt; it isn't well-documented and the topo for Flakeview in the Selected Climbs guidebook is a mess. As noted above, Bear Cub starts at the left end of a small ledge where it drops off into a steep gully. Bear Hunt starts about 15' to the right, near the right end of the small ledge.

Location

Located up on a ledge that is above and right of Fine Line and Drivin' and Cryin'; starts about 15' left of Bear Hunt.

Protection

Bolts, rap tree (shared with Bear Hunt).
