Access Issue: Quincy and at least parts of rattlesnake are state natural areas and thus closes to climbing. Please respect the ban. Details


This route coined the name from a hornets nest that had to be removed half way up (half way down on rappel), and from the remains of the black charred tree trunk at the start of the climb. This is a fun zig-zag crack with lay-backs and jamming. The last ten feet are slightly overhung and finishes on good hand holds.


Route is directly between Anniversary and Slab Crack.


Route will take everything from cams, hexes, nuts and of course a top rope set-up.
