DescriptionThe largest animal that actively hunts humans, this one throws a little bit of everything at you to make one of the best routes around.
Start in the obvious bolted left-facing dihedral on the south face of the Bear Gun. As the holds disappear employ funky body-english maneuvers to find yourself at the base of the roof. Pull through on small slopers and tough jams and then sprint up the perfect ringlock corner crack as the pump builds to a fat ledge. From the ledge work your way up and left through another roof which thankfully has good feet and then blast up the featured hand crack. Awesome top out by laybacking a massive roof crack past a bolt. Belay from the tree or the summit anchor.
LocationSouth face of the Bear Gun, visible from the saddle.
The whole tower and approach goes into the shade around 1 or 2 pm.
