Description

Start on the block just left of Bear’s Choice. Follow the discontinuous crack system towards the middle of three small trees. When comfortable, stem/traverse into the upper right-slanting crack (the crux), above the rightmost tree. Mixed face and crack climbing leads to a large belay ledge, same as for Bear’s Choice. To descend, either scramble left to the anchor for Ursa Major and rappel, or head over and right, using the south face descent.

Protection

small nuts to 2" cams, gear anchor

The tree just off the ground is obnoxious. Wouldn't mind seeing it removed personally though I'm unaware of the local ethics involving this so it wont be bothered by me. The other two weren't in the way at all. The ending where it steepens is the good part of the climbing for me. Jul 22, 2016
