This is the 11a that goes about 10 bolts all the way up the wall. Very long. Too short for a 50 m. rope, but who has a 50 m rope anyway. 60 m. was long enough to leave us about 15 feet of extra rope at the end, but tie a knot in the end of the rope, just in case. This route starts behind the big boulder, between the boulder and the wall, on a nicely developed platform. Starts out fairly easy up 4 or 5 bolts, then turns nasty as you enter the black streak. Go over 2 little bulges and then finish on the very easy last 2 bolts. Long! UPDATE: Beekeeper is on Petroglyph Wall (or Pictograph more accurately), not Engagement Alcove.

4 out of 5 stars Sustained 11a climbing

Safe if you are aware of the subtle ledges on the first 5-6 bolts. Take 12 draws with you for the 10 bolts and the chains. Great route!
