Description [Edit]

This is a good route as a scramble, mostly due to its position and views. This is more of a hike than anything, but the final 30' are very cool and climb out and over onto a spire tip hanging several hundred feet above the canyon's floor.

Location [Edit]

The route is found via swinging southeast around the end of the formation and then up to the West side of the South face and down into a notch. From there the fun begins, onto and out the small twisted finger of rock over hundreds of feet, if not a thousand above the bottom of Bear Canyon. To descend, climb back the way you came.

Protection [Edit]

A rope if that is your gig, but the route is sufficiently safe as a scramble in approach shoes and doesn't really take gear anyway.

I would recommend using the Seal Rock approach trail, the north face talus and blocks are slippery when wet and slow going. May 24, 2015
