This is the obvious bolted line on Slab 1.

P1: scramble up a short gully to a small ledge, and head straight up to a bolt, or begin climbing a crack and dihedral to the right. Continue straight up, placing some natural gear or clipping some bolts to the belay/rap station. This is a different set of anchors from the South Arete, 5.6.

P2: climb up and to the right, into a series of steeper overlapping slabs (crux). Climb through these, placing protection and occasionally clipping a bolt, until you reach the upper face of the slab, where the rock becomes smoother and "slabby". This is a really fun pitch. Continue up to the 2-bolt rap station, 5.7+.


A small rack up to a #3 or #4 Camalot.


"Bear Mountain Picnic" was put up by Eric Zschiesche and Donna Quinn on lead, so it is a FA also.

P1: 5.7 sport climb, 6-7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, a tad runout.

P2: lots of bolts around, but some are unclear whether they're part of the route. Some trad gear was useful for pulling the small overhang. You need a rope longer than 70m! We got stuck about 5 feet above the first anchor and had to improvise to reach it. A 70m rope does reach the ground from the first anchor. Jul 5, 2017
