Description

Climb up the pockets on the semi-steep rock. The beginning and end are more difficult with a relaxed middle. There are two places where in 2015 you had to avoid huge bees hives (hence the name): one hive was about halfway up to the right, the other almost at the top to the right. If you ever think this isn't amazing climbing, just remember you are climbing in Zambia!

Location

Going along the cliff line from the west, find the big boulder to start on, the route goes up to the right of the black mark and avoiding any obviously easy crack/chimney.

Protection

Sling the tree at the top of the climb. Zambia's no place for redundant anchors. The trail going to the top is marked on the trees to your right. Also, trees used for anchors are all marked.
