Description:

This route was recently rebolted and it is much safer and more enjoyable. Start is the same for Bee Sting, but climb straight up the face instead of traversing right. Lots of thin slab moves. The route increases in steepness as you climb. The crux is making the last moves to top out. Note - there are shuts at the top of the climb immediately left of this one so no tree anchor necessary. Shuts can be used to top-rope the 5.10 and 5.9 if so desired.

Descent Options:

Set an anchor on the tree, 5 ft to the left of the finish of the climb. Descend by walking off to the left.
