BETA PHOTO: Overview of the popular routes
The crux is down low where the route overhangs slightly. Takes nuts really well and the rock is really solid the whole way. Route follows multiple crack systems but is rather obvious when you begin climbing. Avoid clipping the bolts for fowl play too soon. This route officially ends when you reach the large ledge about 3/4 of the way up Fowl Play. Continue up Fowl Play clipping its bolts until the Fowl Play anchor is reached.
Between Fowl Play and the Bee Pitch. Crack angles rather steeply to climbers left and then gets a bit thinner after a slight ledge is reached.You will be changing cracks multiple times during the climb. Avoid clipping fowl play bolts to early in the climb. Rap from Fowl Play anchors using a 70 m rope.
Standard rack will suffice. As with all the routes on bumble bee, it takes nuts really well.
Finish at the anchors for Fowl Play.

Really fun route, I would just move to fowl play after the first initial cracks. The climbing is simply better on the sport route at the end. unless your like me and refuse to clip the bolts in order to get a "trad" experience. Pretty easy to top out at the bee pitch if you don't want to clip bolts. I would call this a 9.
