Description

Stick clip recommended. Challenging moves up off the deck to the first bolt. Some less advanced climbers might have quite a bit of difficulty on this start making it feel much harder than ~5.10a. Follow the bolt line while being mindful of the less solid cobbles to the right side along the arete. Crux might be moving through after clipping the 3rd bolt, unless getting started off the deck is your crux.
Route got the moniker from the curious little hummingbird that visited me in the middle of route development.

Location

From the four original sport routes at the Parowan Gap crag, move left through the tunnel between the wall and the rock island then turn the corner to the right once you've emerged. Two new routes are located here on the face between the arete edge and the corner crack (which I believe is Draney's Sheeka 5.7 noted in Goss' book).
Belayer be mindful of additional cobbles cleaning off of the route from the climber. Be prudent, wear a helmet at Parowan Gap, Shinobe and Roller Rink crags!

Protection

4 bolts plus 2 single ring anchors. Stick clip for bolt 1 is recommended.
