PLEASE pick up your trash when you climb here - this includes toilet paper. There is quite the toilet paper bouquet building in the bushes across from the Welcome wall. Pack it in - pack it out. Thanks!

Brigette,

That is because all the newbies climb that chossy ass wall. But they should know LNT (leave no trace).

That "chossy ass wall" is home to a few great easy-moderate leads for those of us mortals that climb at the Homestead. :)

Heads up: as of March 2016, there is an active beehive at the base of the "Peanut Butter Crack Lover (5.8)" climb.

Seriously beware of the bees. 5-8-16, afternoon, we stopped in from of the flat rock right at the base & dropped our packs for a minute to discuss a plan. Within seconds bees were aggressive/in our faces & hair, came away with only one sting on the hand. We very quietly ran downstream a bit & then waited about five minutes before slinking back for our packs. Noise, dark clothing, dogs all aggravate these bees & when the temp is high, they can easily be nudged into a full attack. Crush the first one & more will come to defend. We will steer well-away from this wall/area near it for a while.
