Please stop putting the dreaded "X", "Bees" or "Snake" on the rock faces. Please be smart and conscious of others.
Stop putting tick marks on the rock unless you are going to brush them off when you are done on the route. This goes against the ethic of the area and in the eyes of the locals is the same as graffiti. Rock climbing is an outdoor sport and guess what lives outdoors? That's right, bees, wasps, snakes, and even bears! We all know they exist, no reason to write it on the walls.
This route is found on the far right side of the Cirque, just to the right of Freedom Tree. Although the rock quality is far from great it is nevertheless a good filler route. Most of the climbing is no harder than 10+ with the exception of the crux sequence (low end 5.12) above the third bolt and the exit moves (mid 11ish) to the anchor. McCray called this 12c but I would be more apt to say it felt like 12a/b. But who am I after all to argue with such rockstar royalty?
Just to the right of Freedom Tree.
7 bolts to bolted anchors. New bolts as of 12/2013.
