Description 

You will find easy and intermediate grades of mixed quality. Some of them stay dry even after heavy rain.
Orientation is east, south east, shade after about 11h

Getting There 

From the Tranquilitas Adventure farm, cross the road and take the left path, heading for the cliff line. After 100 meters take the smaller right fork that lead to the cliff. Scramble down the blocky gulley. At the bottom, go left for 10 meters to find the obvious crack of GRIZZLY BEHR. On the right, after the big cave you will find the other climbs starting on the smooth brown face.

From the Tranquilitas camping, take the path heading northwest following a couple of electricity poles. The main path will become a mountain bike trail leading to a wooden bridge and a small waterfall. Before the next wooden bridge follow the path in the forest for 200 meters. You will arrive at the obvious crack of GRIZZLY BEHR. On the right, after the big cave you will find the other climbs starting on the smooth brown face.
