Starts the same as The Mexican, however, at bolt 2 (a permadraw), start traversing right on the ledge and follow permadraws to the anchors above the start of the Awesome Roof Wall. Be aware of bees near the anchors. If bees start attacking, just lower on permadraw.


Same start as The Mexican. Wall/route is just left of the awesome roof wall.


1 bolt, 5 permadraws, anchors. Also, ***BE ALERT*** Under the anchors, there's a small cave with a beehive the size of a basketball. They can get aggressive when disturbed.

I traversed it over to the 5th permadraw when bees started getting angry...I still considered it a send.

Good news! The beehive is either gone or the little devil's are at least asleep for the winter.

Pretty fun route if you're in the mood for an easy traverse with a little bit of forced exposure under the anchors.
