Aron hits the reachy pocket in the Scary Overhang....

Yearly fire hazard closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route ascends the scary overhang on the left side of the front (downhill) face on the Main Rock at Grizzly Peak.

The V3 variation is a stand start, heading up to two pockets before getting your hands up over the lip of the scary overhand on the mantle ledge of the Scary Overhang. However, instead of pulling a mantle on this variation - go left staying on the overhung face and "top out" around the arete onto the warmup face.

Protection 

A Couple of pads to cover the nice rock in the landing are a good idea.
