Rhiannon almost finished with Bee Hold


Climb up past 2 bolts in a black, sometimes wet, right facing corner to a ledge. Follow the line of bolts, trending left up the face.

A great route with fun movement throughout. The bolt spacing keeps the ledge in play for several clips afterwards. An exciting lead if 5.8 is your level.


Start 20 feet left of the toe of the cliff below a small right facing corner.


Sport. Fixed anchors at the top.

This route is great, really fun moves. I kept thinking I must have passed the crux but it kept getting more challenging and fun as I went along. Does anyone know if this was bolted on lead?

M LaViolette Jr: Yes, bolted on lead. Also, some of this route was led before that on gear.
