Description

This is an interesting route with a very applicable name. It's located on the same rock as Butcher Knife Crack, but it's to the right and around the corner. It's called the Bear Hug because once you're about 3 or 4 moves up you can place your hands on each side of the wall since it's so skinny. All you need to do is slap your hands up and move your feet. To make it harder, don't use the "bear hug" move and only use the features on the face.

Location

Around the right hand corner of the rock there is only one apparent climb, which is the Bear Hug.

Protection

Two bolts at the top of the rock serve the Bear Hug route and The Mantles route.
