Description

The Bee Pitch climbs the obvious system which splits the Bumble Bee Wall, just right of Fowl Play (5.9 bolted route). The start is a bit hard to pick out. Look for two cracks which meet at a chockstone with webbing on it to mark the route.

P1) Climb the left crack through tough bulges up to the chockstone, then jam up to a chain anchors just left of the crack. 5.8 hard

P2) Make a difficult bulgy move off the belay, than really easy climbing leads to a ledge system. 5.7

P3) Scramble up the really easy gully to another ledge system. 4th class

Descent) Walkoff possible. Other options: rappel after pitch one (the 2nd and 3rd are not good), or rappel after pitch 2 (Fowl Play's anchors - 100 feet to the ground). I combined P2 & P3, but than downclimbed P3 to the Fowl Play anchors.
