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.
Be ready to fire off your entire round to send this short left-leaning, bolted seam. Although the rock is chossy, the movement and aesthetics of the line make this a worthwhile venture if you're in the area.
5.11 climbing on some suspect rock will take you to the sobering crux right above the third bolt. Navigate your way around the thin bouldery crux and then continue fighting up the crack using a combination of insecure laybacking and face moves.
Should this thing go to the top of the cliff. Hmm... maybe we should find out.
This route is located just left of Fearful Symmetry and few routes right of Fatback/Mechanical Bull.
