FYI - was swarmed by wasps when climbing on wave rock on 5/31/2014. They're nesting in the cracks, but pretty active during the day. Luckily, they only attempted to sting the rubber on my cams. Jun 4, 2014
Better to walk off to the west from the top anchors. Rapping to the tree takes you over a bees nest in a flake and isn't that great for the tree. It also takes a lot longer than the very easy walk off down the slabs on the west flank. Jun 2, 2012

On 5/15/12 I added 2 Slings with 2 Rap rings to the Pine tree in the gully. I had noticed a bit of wear around the tree from repetitive rope-pullings..
