|The Beehive Wall
Located just below the Peace Bridge and the road, this wall/boulder offers 7 or 8 entertaining problems on coarse but solid rock and of approximately 15 feet in height--a nice height when bouldering alone. The landings for the problems are mostly excellent, although a stone and mortar bench sits a few inches off the ground at the base of several problems (it's fairly easy to avoid if you know you're going to fall). This is probably one of the best places to visit at Rubidoux if you're an intermediate climber looking to get in a quick bouldering session after work. The problems range between V-easy and V5 in difficulty. Because of the compact spread of the problems on this wall, many variations are possible--including a high traverse of the entire wall.
In the past, a lively beehive existed at the right end of the wall and could add extra excitement to a bouldering session. It seems to have been destroyed at some point during the past two years. EDIT: Nope, it's still there as of March 2009, but it doesn't seem quite as active.
From Peace Bridge, follow stairs below the road to this obvious wall.

Why is this specific area within Borson's not shown as an pinned area on the map that shows the different areas within Borson's?
When you post route information, is it updated through the app for iPhone/iPad?

I have added the location to the map, and yes if you download the updates for the area you should see them on the iPhone app.
