The start is left of the aspen.

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This route lies to the left of a large hole in the rock. It is a fun line. Climb a left-facing corner and follow to the left side of the large, overhanging bulge.


Quickdraws to a 2 bolt anchor. No more than a dozen are needed.

This route is called "Aspen Fantasy Land" in the Orenczak/Lynn guide. "The Voo" guide has the confusing habit of renaming routes which were climbed trad originally but then bolted as sport climbs.

One of the few Beehive lines that is sustained from bottom to top.

The bottom half is slabby with smearing.

The upper half is bulges with good holds, but it is awkward.

The second best Beehive route behind "Lucky Groove."
