This is an all trad climb that goes up a dihedral/gully past a small pine tree to a vegetated ledge. Then it goes up a face to another vegetated gully to the money part of the climb. The money part involves perfect but easy lieback moves that protect well throughout to another small ledge. Then you do the crux moves up a face with pulling on a hold to the left to a big ledge. You need to walk/climb about 30 to 40 back on the ledge to find good anchor placements. Don't be fooled by the vegetated lower parts as the lieback moves up higher are really good.
This route is about 75-100' right of "Baby Bear" on the left side of the east face of Punk Dome. It starts at a block that has a distinct 3" to 6" crack running through it with a very small juniper tree nearby. The coordinates are N 37.08134 and W 118.95726. To get down you must do 3rd and 4th class down climbing on ledges to the climber's right to reach the bolted rappel chains for "Baby Bear" and the other climbs.
