Climb the right facing corner through a small overlap to a stance. Place gear, then climb through a second overlap using footholds on the face. Surmount the roof and continue up the slab on easy terrain finding protection in the cracks. Move slightly left towards a large pine tree at the top of the cliff and step up onto a ledge with a small right facing corner. Make a final spicy move (5.6, slightly runout), then paw your way up moss and roots to the pine tree.
We would describe the protection as PG due to the possibility of poor quality rock on the route. Black Bear is brand new and we removed several large deathblocks while cleaning it. As with any route at Black Mountain, be very aware of rock quality as you climb.
