Description

Pull pockets up the the slightly overhanging face on the backside of the main formation at Bear Canyon. Great climb for the grade! Probably the best climb of the area.

Location

Just to the right of the large prow on the smooth face litered with small pockets. Usually in the shade.

Protection

Sport climbing with a funky clip into anchor at the top. 5 bolts.

Left cold shut anchor is a bit loose. I can rotate it around. The attaching bolt seems secure, though. Jun 12, 2017

Actually a really good first 5.11 lead for someone looking to break into the grade. No real stopper moves, just great flow and consistency the whole way up. May 8, 2014

Matt, the line direct finish to ignition is a 5.12a called 'tree hugger' Nov 13, 2013
I went to the right side anchor and it felt a bit harder than 11a. Fun climb! Nov 13, 2013

A fun, albeit blank .11d/.12a variation to this route breaks right after the fourth bolt to the right anchor. Palm and match the one remaining feature - work the feet! Aug 20, 2012
