Rock Climbing Photo: On the North America Wall in 1977.
I'm planning to do this route in April but I've heard rumors that there is a big wasp's nest up high blocking the route.
Does anyone know anything about this one way or the other?

Thanks.

When me and a buddy went up last spring to put the new bolts in on the headwall we didn't see any wasps nest. I know that was last year but a big wasps nest probably would have been there last year as well right? Also we only made it to the roof above the headwall due to time.

Let me know how it is if you do it. I've haven't heard of anyone climbing it since the new bolts.

We were stymied last year at the sandy roof due to a lack of a big enough cam. I want to get up on that headwall! That free pitch up there looks great.

When did you do it last year? How were the bolts on the headwall? that roof looked pretty wide but easily doable with some big stuff. A number 6 looked like it would have done the trick. steven sadler

We were there in late April. The bolts, as far as we got, looked fine. Mark Hudon
