The crux on this one is obvious. Right in the middle of the route, you'll find yourself crouching in a shallow pocket, trying to get your left foot out of the way so you can stabilize your left arm. Once you've done that, you can stand up and scramble over the top.


On the right of the west face of the easternmost (right-most) boulder in the Beehive Boulder series.


Crash pad.

[Hide Comment] Another problem with a new name! Please delete this page. The stuff at Santee has been named for a long time, we don't need new names for the problems. And also, it's not even clear what problem you're describing. Delete this page please! Jan 24, 2013

[Hide Comment] Ok, I agree with Michael that we don't need new names. If this is the original name, then way to go digging it up from the past. Otherwise I feel we should leave it alone, another unnamed Santee problem...

Last I checked, First Ascentionists name routes/boulder problems. Not the first person to post it to the internet. Feb 22, 2013
[Hide Comment] What's the old name then? Feb 23, 2013
