Description

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.

Location

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

Protection

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