As you enter the main palisade area of the Bear Caves (it's basically a long wall stretching left and right looking at the cave), it is the obvious crack to the right of the massive central overhang and tunnel -- leading to the other side of the boulder.

Start on the right arete under the crack that leads up, and go up any way you can.

Can really only do it when it's super dry, as this is kind of an off-width style of climb.


The first courtyard-esque area you reach when you arrive at the Bear Caves proper. A large overhang and hole to the other side greet you. Very obvious, and most families hang out here.


Several mats as the moves are slightly unorthodox on the way up. Landing is flat rock.
