Description:

150' feet of fun climbing. First pitch is more enjoyable than the second. If you top out, rappel down to the ledge, then pull the rope, and rap of the ledge. Or trail a second rope, and do it all in one rap.

5 out of 5 stars Bees are still there...

Great climbing on the first pitch! I can tell this route doesn't get a lot of action since the honey bees nest is still there after all this time since the last reviewer mentioned it. Second Pitch start is the crux.

5 out of 5 stars great climb

really fun climb, a bit run out between the third and fourth bolt, but i had a light rack so i think i just used a red c4. the second pitch starts off with the crux and ledge fall potential. walk up the ledge you would think is for your hands, go left then right towards the bolt. belay spot right before the topout and chains on top.

4 out of 5 stars First pitch only

Great climb, definitely a little ranout. jammed in a red TCU after third bolt I think for a little added security. Bees nest still really active, but they seemed cool and its easy enough to pass them up by staying just left of 4th bolt and trying not to use their nest as a foothold.

somebody needs to spray that nest! there is at least 75 bees in that and i had to go around it and get way off route and couldnt clip the last bolt so i was about 25 ft runout!! fun!
