Just a heads up...upstream of Kinesthetica there is a bee nest under the large rock.

Yeah, there were bees everywhere when I was there two weekends ago. Fortunately, they weren't very aggressive, but they insisted on landing on the belayer all the time, and it was quite nerve-racking. A good spraying of DEET finally got them to leave us alone, but not until one of their number had stung my climbing partner when she inadvertantly smacked it on belay.
