Description

A nice, tear-shaped tower that is entirely free-standing, but separated by only a tight corridor from the adjacent formation.
This is the best route in the Bear Rocks, offering relatively safe climbing on decent stone. Start on the left rib with crux moves off the ground. Clip the marginal drilled pin (soft rock), move right to a bolt, and then up the headwall past another bolt to anchors below the summit block. Carefully attain the summit and then downclimb back to the anchors.

Location

The Honey Bear is found near the center of the Bear Rocks outcrop. The route is shown on the photo.

Protection

3 bolts to cold shuts.
