Thought it was early for this one. First time I put my hand into a wasp nest. Did not get stung. Surrounded by tons of wasps on Beginners route and Hanta Yo. Learned how to reverse mantle multiple times. Large nest on Beginners route, Hanta Yo ledge (Tree), and the Arete. Islands, Stroke, Still Gettin, Velvet, Stricnyne were good. Enjoy.

The seam on p.3 of Layback Route is also full of bees. They were just barely moving around though, did not bother me.

Thanks for the heads up. The bees can definitely be a problem on certain routes, I was stung at least once on the lead during the FA of Coyote Rain and multiple times on the FA of Earth & Sky; fortunately I am not allergic and I was able to continue. They were just over the roof on both routes, and also in a 1 1/2" pocket under the Coyote Rain roof as well. Both nests were relatively small, about the size of a softball, and were eradicated last year; neither location was rebuilt by the bees after removal, but I can't speak for this season. I suspect the large amount of traffic on Coyote Rain will discourage them returning there, but they have to go someplace, right?

A little Agent Orange should make short work of those bees and assist with removing the lichen to boot.

Personally I prefer just knocking off the nest and forcing them to relocate, best done on rappel with a stick so you can then zip down out of harms way. I can't bring myself to outright kill them.

I was on Hanta Yo on sunday and found no bees. But maybe they were asleep. What ledge the first or the second?
