An area with a good day of climbing for the savvy 5.10 leader. This rock has one of the shortest approaches in OZ. Standouts include the thin Welcome To Rondoland (aka Glenda's Crack) (5.10d), Click Your Heels Twice (5.10c), Storm Riders (aka The Answer) (5.9) and the enjoyable Honey (5.9).
From southern parking pullout on Gold Park Road, Munchkinland, which includes No Place Like Dome, is the complex area of dark rock visible from the car. Head west-southwest into the obvious drainage for the area. Boulder hop up and left past the first large face encountered. Most of the routes are located on the norh face, and are not visible on the approach. The routes descend to the south (climbers left).

Fun and varied, this may be the best pitch on the crag. A couple of moves off the ledge gain the bottom of a left-arching splitter crack. The crack ends at about the half way point, above fun face climbing on good edges leads to the top. Recommend doing this in cool to cold weather as the route name is a reference to the bee hive in the upper section of the crack. In cold weather the bees will be gone or dormant/docile. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
