This route is no gimme. I got punished by it the first couple of times I lead it. First, I thought it was at least 11d, but then after a few laps, once we knew how to do the difficult and reachy crux, I and the party I was with, agreed that it is around the 11a/b(more b than a) rating. The Bear's Lair offers routes that are definitely of an overhanging, weird side pulls and body positions, climbing style. The route Bear Trap definitely has a pronounced crux at the third bolt. It will feel harder for short people - the crux involves a long reach.
Also, I tightened the nut on the third bolt using my fingers as good as I could. It was almost entirely spun out. Jun 4, 2017
