Although this is listed as a sport climb, this isn't a clip up. This is a ground-up bolted route with a little bit of spice. The route is named after a bear encounter and the fact that it is one of the most well-protected climbs at TR. Most of the climbing is on neat edges and crystals, with a few slab moves thrown in.

Start just left of the first bolt and follow good holds to the first bolt. The next two bolts is the thin crux section. Follow 4 more bolts through some thought-provoking terrain. Easy ground leads to the two-bolt anchor.


First bolted line when you reach this ledge. Look for the downed tree that makes for a nice bench. Several bolts are noticeable from the ground.


Draws for 6 bolts and a two-bolt anchor. 60m rope required.
