Since the climax of Bearstone happens so late in the book, the falling action comes very near the end. I'd locate it mainly in Chapter 21. There Cloyd visits Walter after the rest, and that's when events unfold after the rescue, with plans being made for Cloyd's future. That's also when he attempts to change with the reading teacher.
