A nice slab climb with a tough start, Bear Hunt is a good pitch to get to the moderates on the upper tier like Gift Certificate. Rumbling Bald veterans say at least one key hold has broken off, which could explain why the start feels closer to 5.9 than the original grade of 5.7.

Starting on a ledge above and right of Drivin' and Cryin', pull a hard move or two on the steep face to where you can get in some pro. Continue up the gradually easing face, passing a bolt or two, and finish at a tree ledge below Gift Certificate.

Bear Hunt is often confused with Bear Cub, a bolted line to its left.


Starts about 15' right of Bear Cub. Rap from a slung tree.


Small to medium gear; one or two bolts. Anchor on trees at the upper tier ledge.


I liked this. Off the ground it's quite cool, and as noted quite thought-provoking for the leader. Kind of similar to the all-bolted climb to the left, but at least you get to plug some gear. Oct 29, 2016

It's very run out to the first gear placement. Not counting the one you can reach from the ground. I was a little scetched till I got the first piece in. It's still run out after that but at least they are nice solid bolts. Feb 10, 2013
The common start is at a horizontal finger crack and is 5.9 or so. The 5.7 start is 10 ft left and starts with a slab move to a 0.4 camalot. Route has two old bolts. Mar 6, 2011
V1 start followed by 5.7 climbing to the top. Aug 14, 2010
better than the route to the left of it. it takes nice gear but has some suspect looking rock above the second horizontal for pro. ~3 gear placements if you use the first horizontal that you can reach from the ground, two bolts at the top. Nov 30, 2009
