Description

Hive Boulder:

Sit-start at the base of the boulder on the slab block under the boulder itself. hands on top, and feet on smallish edges, or smeared. lever up and nab any good ripple or edge above the slab on the big main boulder, and bring feet up onto the top of the slab block.
from here, follow the line up the boulder as a sort of wide arete, using edge holds, smooth knobs, or shallow pockets to the top out. feet follows most of the way.
the top out is straight forward.
