BETA PHOTO: Northeast side of the 'Beekeeper Boulder'


An enormous boulder featuring some of the best and proudest lines in the Buttermilks...

The northeast side of the boulder features a low super-steep cave/roof with amazing holds that lead out to the very intimidating upper face, where only the boldest dare to venture. Numerous problems and variations exist under the roof, and the climbing is unique for the Buttermilks.

On the other side, two amazing and hard highballs are found on each of the aretes, 'Golden Shower' v10, and 'Mesothelioma' v7. Both are two of the most impressive lines in the Buttermilks.

This boulder will keep just about everybody satisfied.

Getting There 

From the main trail, take the right fork at the 'Spectre Boulder' and head up the hill 75 yards to the obvious huge boulder. You'll see the roof on the right side.
