“Technical Climbing on Calahan's Marlborough side”— AndyGriffin Griffin
After that the climbing is done, Bear Paw traverses the edge of a meadow, passes through a clump of trees followed by another meadow. Bear Paw then passes a pair of connector trails, one in the meadow, one in the woods. These trails link up to Backpacker.
After the second intersection, Bear Paw turns sharply south and downhill, ending at Pine Tree Loop by an old fireplace.
The Bear Paw hill makes an equally good descent.
Climbing up Bear Paw from Pine Tree Loop is an excellent way to access Backpacker, The Shoot and the Bear Paw descent itself.
