Description

A giant hunk of quartz monzonite. Home to some classic climbs over frightening landings. The lines on the behemoth were originally top roped and then eventually beasts decided to do it ropeless.
This boulder contains a death defying high ball called "Too Big To Flail" at about 55 feet. First ascentionist had 36 crash pads and Lonnie Kauk repeated it with around 30.
Around the corner of this huge line is the classic v9/ v10 originally claimed v11 by the first few climbers including the first ground-up ascentionist Dan Beal. The landing is scary and falling on the last move should not be considered an option.

Getting There

Park at the Beehive parking and walk in between the domes as for the rest of The Beehive climbs. While walking towards Secrets of the Beehive or The Swarm/ Brown Wall Boulder, this boulder will be located down a deep ravine on the left. The top of it is visible from the main trail.
