DescriptionA memorable position, engaging movement and an ephemeral drip ought to make for a worthwhile outing whenever it comes in again. The climbing is undoubtedly going to be harder the drier the route is as the first pitch relies not only on the drip but also on some ice down low, but in the right conditions, it yields two pitches of sustained, technical, and at times quite steep climbing on natural holds in a beautiful amphitheater next to Bear Creek Falls. The name means The Bear, in Hebrew, in memory of our friend Eitan Green - a friend to many in the San Juans - who had also eyed up the wall, and who we hope would have loved it.
P1. Start on ice to reach the first bolt, then climb right and up to gain a shallow corner. At the top of the corner, head left to gain the ice and a belay on a large ledge (M7-8 WI4+, 100').
P2. Step down and left, then up off the ledge and through a series of corners and overlaps to the top (M7, 120').
