Description

Climb the rounded arete right of Bee Gees, joining that route for it's last bolt and anchors. A fun moderate route to do when in the area that is well-protected and offers a variety of steep, balancy moves.

Protection

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (all 3/8")

Fun and balancy route. I started off on the left of the route, and made it a little more challenging to traverse over to the first bolt. Super fun route to do while waiting on the Bird. Bolts on top shared with the 5.4 crack on the right. If setting a top rope use directional. Feb 6, 2017
Climbed this route on 11/15/2015 and found that the anchor bolts were very loose in the rock. Could wiggle the bolt heads with my hand. Rapped off the anchors for Dead Bees, which seemed pretty solid. Another note, it is really really easy to loose a rope in the crack to the right of Bees Knees. There are at least 4 pieces in that crack from other people who have learned this the hard way. Last note, there are no chains, rap rings, etc on the anchors for Bees Knees. One of the Dead Bees anchors had a single quicklink on 11/15/15, I left a biner on the other. Nov 24, 2015
