Access Notes Details


This severe overhanging dihedral is one of the most obvious lines on the Goldilocks Wall. Follow the obvious right leaning dihedral through tricky and powerful lye backs and finger locks. This line was put up first ascent on a lead onsight which is rare today, because most people would rather toprope it.


Papa Bear is located to the left of baby bear and to the right of mama bear.


This dihedral takes small tcu's and nuts plus a few larger cams for the top.
There is a bolted anchor which u can easily access from walking to the top of the cliff.
I can go with 3 stars for papa bear, but for Donner Summit there are very few 5.11b trad routes and Papa Bear is probably one of the best. So I put 4 stars due to what is in the area. If u compare it to Yosemite it definitely doesn't get 4 stars. Aug 5, 2009

A really nice route, congrats to urs on the onsight! I dogged it on TR but enjoyed it. I feel that the shortness of the climb and the short crux don't warrant 4 stars, but definitely a good line with good climbing. Jul 23, 2009
