Climb the steep face past 3 bolts to a funky mantel. From the stance above the mantel, move up and slightly right past a good subtle #2 camelot placement in a horizontal. Continue up past another finger size horizontal to a 2 bolt anchor in bear's head.


Leftmost route on the gorge side of the formation.


3 bolts and light rack of gear - see description.
