Watch for bees at the top. It looks like there is a hive maybe 20-30 feet from the anchors, and I had a few scouts come check me out the other day. And, no chains, just 3 bolts with webbing.

+1 regarding the bees at the top. the hive appears to be near the top on the opposite side of the formation, so be particularly careful on the climbs in that area.

a very nice climb for the queen creek area.

dacite conspiracy now has chains to the two bolts with 2 lockers on the end of the chains. The chains now allow climbers to minimize their bee exposure. If you are careful, it is not difficult to rappel or lower off a 60 meter rope. Tie knots in your ends!!!! Moves to the first bolt can be protect with a #1 or #0.75 c4. Whoever's locker and rap rings I have can have them back, just contact me.

No bees and thanks to whoever put the massive chains and locking biners on the anchors for this. Very nice addition to a very fun climb. In my brother's words (his first time out there), "the climbs just keep getting better and better."
