Start with a crimp and a gaston/sidepull, and do a tricky deadpoint move to the top of the groove feature. Do a move back left to a rail followed by a big slap to a jug up and left. It is an easy topout from here.


It is below the Jungle Wall.


2-4 pads are probably best.

Yup, BS is right. When moving right, you don't have to deadpoint to the crimp, and after cleaning the problem, you get cruise up on jugs. Still deceivingly difficult. Oct 26, 2015

Not sure on the right exit (Venom), I didn't have time to clean it, but it looked a bit easier. The moves after the deadpoint going left add something I think. Oct 26, 2015

The Hornet's Nest is a sick block!
Thought I climbed this rig yesterday before reading your beta - after doing the large deadpoint move I climbed right on more cool holds to a juggy topout. Thoughts on the right variation? Still seemed right around 8/9. Oct 25, 2015
