Catherine Connor on "Phipps' Gardens".

The climb is friction/smearing up a smooth slab. It is more typical of granite slab climbing than other routes on the Beehive.

The crux is smearing with thin edges for fingers between bolts one and two.

A second crux is at another slab between bolts 5 and 8, if you climb directly up the bolts.

This is more sustained than most other moderate Beehive routes.


The trail to Beehive emerges at a broken, left-facing dihedral/drainage system. This climb is located on the smooth rock just left of the broken area.

The rightmost two bolts on the smooth slab are for the "Back to Bucket Country" route.


Sport route with two bolt anchor.
