An oddity for the 'Woo, Beehive Buttress features predominantly bolt protected sport climbing on granite more reminiscent of Boulder Canyon than the sharp, crystally slabs of the rest of the area. Instead of microscopic crimps on smeary slabs, expect jugs, slopers, positive crimps and the odd solution pocket to leaven the face climbing. Situated in a quiet valley away from the maddening crowds, the Beehive Buttress is a great place to go for an afternoon while your gobies heal.
Take Blair-Wallis Road from the Lincoln Monument towards the central area. Hang a left on 705J (unmarked & rough), then another left on 705JA until the road finally becomes too narrow to drive down. Follow an ATV trail until you reach the base of the wall.

Middle Staircase 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b WY : Vedauwoo : Beehive Buttress
This is a fun climb. Start at the left-most low bolt on the main wall of the beehive, just left of Mountainside Hipsters. Continue straight up with nice hands and feet for 5 or so bolts and climb the staircase right to the anchors (which are shared with MH and Lucky Groove).Per Arlo F Niederer: other routes have been squeezed in to the left, so the description of the location is different now. It is between "Alien Dave" and "Intoxica"....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
