BETA PHOTO: This a shot of the upper half of To Bee or Not to ...

Description 

I've eyed this line for years and finally got on it. After I set up my belay on the arete I poked my head around the corner to scope out the traverse only to hear the buzzing of hundreds of bees only 30' away. Not to be shut down we went for it and the bees kept there distance. To Bee or Not to Bee starts just right of Intimidation's start on a face crack with an old pin but any other route to get to the shelf half way up the wall will work. Make a belay near the arete on the left then commit to an unprotected traverse around the corner to the left. Pull through the roof and follow the crack that splits the face to the top.

Location 

starts just right of the chimney in the middle of the wall

Protection
