Just a great pitch!
Fun and varied, this may be the best pitch on the crag. A couple of moves off the ledge gain the bottom of a left-arching splitter crack. The crack ends at about the half way point, above fun face climbing on good edges leads to the top. Recommend doing this in cool to cold weather as the route name is a reference to the bee hive in the upper section of the crack. In cold weather the bees will be gone or dormant/docile.
Starts on the right side of the ledge/alcove where Storm Riders (aka The Answer) tops out. Climbing The Answer (5.9) would be the best way to approach. Walk off climbers' left.
Std rack to 3". Face above the crack is protectable with wires.

bad experience with bees a week and a half ago. stung over 50 times. be forewarned if you're allergic. perhaps not the best crag if so.
