The Bee Cave is a small but distinct sector. There are currently just two finished routes and two incomplete projects.

Getting There 

The Bee Cave is approached via the sole access trail which makes a single large switchback. Upon reaching the wall continue hiking east, gaining elevation. A fixed metal guideline protects the narrow corner at the start of the cave.
