Start by frictioning up to a set of parallel cracks. Once in the cracks, work to the left most crack and up to a ledge. Once at the ledge, move right and up a slot crack in the skyline above. A variation has been done to this route by traversing LEFT onto Ursa Major just after encountering the ledge and climbing past two bolts to the chained anchor.


The route is approximately 20' right of Benevolent Bruin, marked by two cracks 10' off the ground. Use the chained anchor provided on top to lower off.


- Pro to 1", mostly small cams and nuts
