The fun starts right away on Bearish, with a difficult crux involving a high step and some very careful balance. After clipping the second bolt, make a difficult and awkward traverse left to an awkward ramp. Work back up to the right, along the ramp. From here the climb ascends straight up with some very interesting moves getting to and passing a large chicken head. Continue up the wall on delicate features to gain the anchor, shared with Skyscraper. Despite the preponderance of lichen, the holds are solid and the feet stick very well. Rappel to descend.


Left side of Delancey Rock, farthest bolt line to the left.


6 bolts, bolted anchor

Found another way to surmount the starting crux - thin edging just to the right of the mantel. Still at least .10b Jul 28, 2009

The best route at the Lower East Side with a bouldery crux start and engaging climbing throughout higher. Once past the crux the climbing is no harder than 5.9. Aug 7, 2010

Wow - beautiful climb with very cool body-english moves the whole way up. I highly recommend this route, hit it up on the hike out from Central, you'll be glad you did. I'll give it 4-stars once it's nice and clean. Oct 12, 2013
