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.
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.
Steep jug-hauling down low to fun and exciting moves around the bulge.Sit-start down at the lowest two huecos and make a move up and left to a huge jug. Follow the jugs and good edges out to the jug flake. Rest here, then bust up thru the crux with crimps and sidepulls to the huge flake with a jug at the top. Downclimb/drop off here or continue out up and right to the top of the boulder at 30+ feet!...[more]Browse More Classics in CA
