Rock Climbing Bears, No Gear Needed

We all know that Yogi can climb trees, and we recently posted a video of a black bear dangling from a rope, but this is the first time we’ve seen a bear pulling these kinds of delicate rock moves!

Even the young cub shows some pretty solid technique, no sticky rubber needed!

According to the YouTube post by Stephanie Latimer, this video features Mexican black bears climbing a wall in Santa Elena Canyon on March 21, 2014. The Mother and her cub were spotted while kayaking and shared “for your nature loving, rock climbing, suspenseful satisfaction.”
