The Bear's Reach is a technical rock climbing route on Lover's Leap near Lake Tahoe, CA. Considered a classic for its grade, it includes both face and crack climbing. The route is named for the crux of the second pitch, a long reach between two large holds. The route is best known in popular culture through viral video featuring Dan Osman speed climbing the route in 4 min 25 sec, and completing a famous ropeless double dyno between two holds. The video was featured in Masters of Stone IV, 1997.
