Description 

This is a super stellar route that follows a black water streak up with a sequential, balance crux for the last two or three bolts. It is very exciting. This is one of the most enjoyable routes at the Beehive. There is an option at the top to continue up for a second pitch if you choose, not bad at all....

Protection 

8-9 bolts to an anchor.

There are three bolted pitches with ledges between them above this. 5.10a, 5.9, and 5.9. All have bolted rap anchors, the rap anchors on top of the third pitch are ten feet left of the anchors atop the pitch.

Felt quite hard (first pitch) compared to other climbs in the area. We both thought the sequential crux moves were 10+.
