Description

The showpiece pinnacle of the Bear Rocks, this 80’ freestanding spire is readily visible from Highway 14. Start on the uphill side, where a faint trail runs adjacent to the base. Boulder up an arete diagonal cracks and a bulge; from the sloping ledge surmount the crux crack through the upper bulge and into easier terrain to the top.

Location

Ursus Major is the most prominent tower of the Bear Rocks; it stands in profile when seen from Highway 14. It's on the left side of the outcropping, and stands out in front of the surrounding formations.

Protection

Gear to 3", summit cold shuts.
