Start as per Bear Essence and Bear Pause stemming the main wall and large boulder sitting next to it. Arrive at a slanting ledge and follow it all the way until it's end at a vertical hand crack which is the finish of Bear Elegance. Can be sewn up to prevent a follower swinging across slab or possibly decking.


Walk north along the West face of Lost Orbit until a large boulder blocks the path. Start here; look up and to the right for the crack. Walk off to the right or rappel from the bolts of Ursa Major on the left.


To really sew it up uses nearly a full rack of cams to 3". Gear anchor

As a beginning trad leader, the world of unbolted routes has been newly opened up to me and as such I saw this crack and wanted to do it. It wasn't on Mt Project so I added it. It's an easy lead, but interesting on account of gear placements being at your feet along the ledge.
