|Louisville Swamp Boulder (S/W Twin Cities Metro, near Shakopee)
This contains the same finishing moves as the stand start version of Beehive but begins with a series of fun crimp moves. Start by sitting to the right of the main route under an excellent jug to the lower left of a small overhanging section. Both feet are close beneath the jug, but you may have to sort through the grass a bit to find your left foot chip. Move left off of the jug into a short series of crimps. Then reach the shelf/crack above the start and traverse left from there, finishing with the standard Beehive moves. The two approaches are similar in difficulty but the sit start kicks off with a more technical sequence than the original line. Both versions however are equally enjoyable.
just right of "Beehive"
two pads and a spotter recommended
