Look for the "bear claw" pockets near the start of the route.Climb up and left through the crux to a good rest. Then climb right aiming for the vertical "flues" that make for interesting stemming. rach another good rest then head back left and climb to the top. The physical crux is in the first 15ft... the mental much higher.
You can escape on a ledge to the right 3/4 of the way up the route.

The descent is a down climb off the back side or you could always jump! It would be a hell of a jump though!


Mid way up canyon on the right hand(going upstream) wall.


This is a deep water solo.

This is a great climb. Once you pass the 1/2 way mark falling/slipping is no longer an option because its not very clean. You could always jump off though. A raft or boat that you can stand on is definitely needed to reach the first pocket. Sep 14, 2014

As a rule, the lines here are dictated by a clean fall to the water. Bear Claw climbs left from the 2/3 mark onto the exposed white stone with black patina all over it. If you are up high and climbing without the possibility of falling then you are off route. Jun 24, 2015
