Description:

Start to the right of the pillar at the base of Bee Sting beneath 2 bolts. The first bolt is pretty high. (If the height of the first bolt is concerning, you can access it more easily by stemming up the corner to the left and then stepping right onto the ledge to clip the bolt and begin the climb) Climb up past the 2 bolts on thin face moves (crux). Continue on to the very textured face passing 2 more bolts to the finish. Note: the rock about 6 ft above the second bolt is hollow. There's good gear there, but be careful. Also, the crux of this route can be avoided by traversing in to the right from the top of the Bee Sting Pillar for a nice 5.10a face route.

5 out of 5 stars Hardest lead of the day

Tough, tough slab climb with thin crimps and tiny feet at the bottom. Easy to get "lost" with poor decision making and the opening moves are balancey and you wouldn't want to fall while executing. Having the hard part at the bottom makes the spicy upper section even spicier as this is definitely a mixed climb and the top probably goes around 5.9 - 5.10a with the hardest parts protected by the two bolts and the easier parts requiring some trad gear. A test for both the body and the mind.

Took one fall on the bottom due to poor route finding. Reset at the first bolt, figured it out and made the rest clean.
