Direct start to Bee Sting. Climb straight up the thin dihedral for 20 feet, then rejoin Bee Sting.

This line is plotted incorrectly in Jemez Rock, but should go as shown in JH's beta photo, I think.

The crack immediately left of this but still right of Momementum (not shown in photo or guidebook) goes at 5.8 with some big loose blocks, and I wouldn't recommend it. It is the climb the guy in this Photo is soloing.
