boulder start is slightly sketchy but ok. the dihedral is #2 to #3 camalot. interesting moves to exit above the roof part (but not very hard). excellent route after the start. No more finger gear once you enter the hand crack

anchor is just above the steep roof part, but you can't seem it from the ground

FA. Karl Kelley. While doing the FA, I accidentally pulled off a loose block and it revealed some petrified hornets, hence the name!

Excellent climb!

Perfect rack (for the nervous leader) in order of use (all BD C4's): #0.5 (in left finger slot, emergency piece), #0.75 (after V3 opening in crack behind ledge, not visible from base), 3x-#1's, 3x-#2's, 3x-#3's, #1 (just before anchors).

If the pitch looks comfortable you can get by with: #0.75, 2x-#1's, 2x-#2's, 2x-#3's, #1.
