Description Suggest change

Powerful moves low down make up the crux of this route. The Wasp has a lot of variety from slick slab to layback to finger crack to roof crack. A lot of stances break up the hard moves making it not too pumpy but the crux moves require power and good technique. It's also good clean aid practice.

Location Suggest change

Just at the top of the left approach trail, between Escapade and Master of Defeet.

Protection Suggest change

2 bolts and gear 0.3" to 2". The route is difficult and good protection is spaced out 5-10 feet so be up for the challenge if you want to lead this. Can be toproped, a longish anchor is advised. One (or both?) bolt has been added to the start since back in the day. I think that one was well deserved.
