Named after the swarm of bees that were attracted to my rope while equipping the route. This route climbs up the obvious white buttress.

Awesome route.

Any one have any more pics of this route. I really want to get on this one next time I'm out in the canyon.

Amazing climbing on stellar stone. Considering it's one of the finest routes in the Canyon one would think it would get a little more attention. Excellent introduction to the harder routes in Spearfish. Technical edges w/ a little power tossed in for good measure. Easier on the tendons than Big Train but slightly more technical. Another Canyon must send!
