Mike's first trad lead - Bear Cub Crack!


This seldom climbed but decent and fun crack is at the far right edge of the Waynes World formation. Climb the crack, belay at a small tree. Rappel from the tree (bring slings) or walk off to the right.


25' right of Waynes World.


Gear to 2-4" cams (?)

Seldom climbed? A group of four was on it when we arrived. The first 15 feet felt stiff for 5.6--I'd rate it 5.7. The upper half is chossy but easy. No need for any cams smaller than 2". I recommend two or even three 3-4" cams.
