Deep in the heart of Lower Bear Canyon, beneath the shoulder of Thimble Peak, lie numerous imposing cliffs; this climb resides on one, Blind Man's Bluff. The lengthy approach rewards you with near-solitude and a decent warm-up, as well as a long first pitch of unorthodox and exciting "crack" climbing. The remaining pitches are still exciting, but decidedly lower quality. There are other climbs on this cliff, as well as in the general area.

Doubles from 0.3-#3 BD, #4 optional; singles of smaller, RPs, runners.
