BETA PHOTO: Beta for Bee Cave routes


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

As the name suggests, there are bees in the cave so caution is recommended.

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.

Climbing Season

Life in Color 5.12+ 7c 28 IX 27 E6 6b  AZ : Southern Arizona : ... : 5 - Bee Cave
Climb a fun, easy corner system that spits you out at a small bulge. Pull over this and onto the beautiful orange and white face above with immediate difficulties. Fight your way through small, perfectly formed holds, culminating in a wild, exposed, and surprisingly pumpy finish. Try desperately to escape to the chains before the call of mediocrity pulls you back to the ground below.I think this could be the best route of its grade at The Dry. If you like face climbing, this route is a must do!...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
