Description Suggest change

Start up the initial slab section to get to a short left facing corner feature about 15ft up.  From here you move right onto the face and follow a series of cracks with bomber gear all the way to a two bolt anchor at the top of the pitch. This may be dirty from low traffic and northern exposure but it is a good pitch of climbing for the grade and can be sewn up with gear.

This is named after my stare down with a black bear at the base of the climb only minutes after finishing the route. After packing our gear in our packs at the base of the X route, I came back to pull the rope to find that a black bear was busy inspecting it. Both of us were shocked to see each other in such close quarters!  -if this goes by another name I'll gladly change it.

Location Suggest change

About 15-20 feet right of the right arching route.

Doubles up to #2, a #3 and #4 useful.
