a good warm up into a harder climb half way up. starts out with easy-med handholds and progresses to pinches and slopers near the top. start is from the lowest point on dynamite wall and follows along to the small ledge halfway up. Follow the ledge across to the right, and work underneath the anchor to the top near the old nest.

3 out of 5 stars Wasp with new people, change of last moves

climbed it with Tony, changed up the last two moves to make it more interesting, instead of heading towards the dynamite hole and the old wasp nest, worked a small crack that sits slightly to the left. Work 2 or 3 moves (depending on your reach) on this fingertip crack then finished with a deep pocket just above the crack.

great route that progressed from easy to hard in a matter of 4 moves. took two times for me to get good holds after the first ledge, was a combination of some wicked finger pinches and one side grip into an old dynamite shaft.
