Easily one of the most popular, most photographed, most visited boulders on the LRT. This boulder has a host of V0-V4 boulder problems with perfect landings and fun, medium to tall top-outs. The boulder is full of crimps and jugs with a few slimpers (narwhal) and smooth drop stones thrown in the mix... Don't miss "Honeycomb", "The Hive", and "Royal Jelly"!

Just get onto the trail past the top overlook and walk down past the "room" where the beast boulder and the tiger-side boulder are (the cave-like place with the white quartz stripes). After you past that, just a few seconds down the trail is the next big boulder which is the Hive. Its a big round boulder sitting on top of a low block "podium".
