At the top of the crack


Climb up a ledge to set a nut below the giant flake then go left and stem across said flake to get to the crack follow the slight right facing crack and take the split to the right to the top.


Crack just right of Bears choice. Start below giant left facing flake right of small bush that denotes Bears choice. Rap off Benevolent Bruin fixed anchor or scramble back and to the right down the south face

Really good entry level trad. I don't think the pg13 grade is necessarily deserved. I imagine it's there because of the giant flake you could hit if you fell, but at no point was I worried about falling as all the holds are great and placements are fine. I set a gear anchor about fifteen feet back from the edge with a .5, .75, and 3 BD cam then walked over to the bolted rappel to the left to get down.
