There is a small hornets nest in the crack at the beginning of the traverse. They're not super aggressive but just a warning in case anyone's allergic

I recommend putting this as a condition report on the climb. So when people look at the route for beta they can see it there instead of checking the forum

Go for it! Found out I get a large local reaction last year on Whitehorse so I am not so keen to go mess with the buggers.

The stuff will spray 15 to 20 feet. Just make sure the wind is right........Or you might get a different reaction .. .. ...... ;)

PS if drones are involved I would like to suggest a flame-thrower option......... ;)
