Start as for Bear Essence, at the squeeze chimney formed by the main wall and the boulder in front. Work up across the first right-slanting crack to a nice ledge/ramp. From here the two climbs part company. Follow this second right-slanting crack through a little exposure and a few nice jams. Finish in the notch above and use the 2 bolt anchor for Ursa Major. Fun lead for the aspiring trad climber and fairly easy for the grade. Rappel to descend.


Gear to 3" bolted anchor

Fun climb, but it doesn't really take any gear until you get established in the crack about 3/4 of the way up. Aug 6, 2012

There's a bolt to clip with a runner down reasonably low. May 19, 2014

I didn't clip the bolt for this climb. I put a BD .4 down low right after stemming, though. I also put in a blue .2 in the flaring section and a 2 when the Jams were more established near the top. I tend to put in a little bit more pro than that but put in pieces every place I could. Oct 2, 2017
