A better way to finish this route is to climb to the beginning of the traverse where Great White Buffalo crosses through (bolt just above) and finish on the Buffalo. This gives you the best (and crux) section of Flared Bear, skips the choss, and ups the difficulty a bit. Done this way the overall crux would be the first 8' after leaving Flared Bear, on a tenuous steep lieback to mantle and would weigh in around 10+. The remainder is slightly easier standard Josh slab paddling on very good rock.
Descent: 3 options.
1. If finishing where it merges with Where Janitors Dare, rap from the large horn type feature (no fixed anchor or station, just drape the rope).
2. Continue into and finish on Where Janitors Dare. Use the rap anchor atop GWBuffalo.
3. If finishing on GWBuffalo, there is a two bolt station with chains/rings at the top.
