Description 

Honey Dipper is a unique climb for this part of Rock Canyon. It's gently overhanging and could produce quite the pump.
For some weird reason it reminds me of License To Thrill in AF. A great route to wire and stay in shape on.
It's unique because in the quartzite section of RC, there isn't an .11c that's this long and a slow pump builder.

A lot of the climbs on The Jobsite are named after terrible jobs. A honey dipper is the person who sucks up the crap out of outhouses and septic tanks.Sure sounds sweet though.

Location 

This is route #9 in the photo. It's the third route from the left.
As you scramble up the Tillite ledge it's the second route on the right.

Protection 

12 bolts and anchors.

Bill Boyle bolted this climb years ago. I just cleaned and redpointed it. And I didn't glue any holds back onto the climb.

Rad climbing for the entire thing, though over the roof it is still a little chossy.

The route honey dipper is an amazing route that I didn't fall in love with. After pulling the roof you enter another world while headed to the chains, you are far from the ground and feel the wind all around you, a beautiful moment there at the top.

For those trying to locate the start of this, the belay station is up at the top of the green pile of rock, to the left of the "cave." If you're coming from the left side of the wall (where the 5.7-8s are), you have to go down and around the green rock, scramble up that bit and then anchor yourself into the wall for belaying. Look for the cemented holds. BTW, this route is every bit deserving of every star it gets.
