Description

Shares a start with Veganator then branches left into steep territory. Lots of air. Originally rated 13a, Vince Bates claims he has found a 12b/c way to do the route, so I've applied that rating.

Location

Right side of Bee Cave.

Protection

Fixed draws.

Luke, you'll have to ask VB. He claims to have found an inobvious hold. I haven't tried it with his beta yet, and his rating ability is suspect anyway. Jan 2, 2010

I saw in the new Dry guide that this was downrated to .12b/c. I can't say I agree as it feels harder than Veganator (.12c to the top) and quite a bit harder than Spinal Twist (.12b). I've never done Oh Bee-have (.12b/c) so I can't really compare there. Maybe I was doing it really wrong???

Any insight here?? Oct 30, 2009
