WARNING FOR SUICIDE DIRECT 5.8. There is now a beehive located on the 2nd pitch (after the first pitch scramble), above the overhang, about 6 feet off of the route. It's near the anchors for that pitch. My partner got stung several times before bailing the route. According to him it doesn't sound like you can tip toe around the beehive.
