Description 

Perhaps the best problem on the wall, this problem shares the start of Killer Bees but moves right and then up using an interesting pinch and requiring good balance and footwork, ending at approximately the same place as the Beehive Mantle.

Location 

3rd problem right of the crack

This is a fun balancy climb. To answer the question above there are two ways to finish this. The best way is to apply foot work and step on the small nubin on the slight bulge out right and reach up to the rail. This requires getting the right, left, right, left, right foot sequence correct so you end up in the right position. The second is to dyno from the left side pull to the rail.
