about 5-6 feet left of it on the edge of the same hueco. going anywhere near that thing in summer would be a BAD idea...

AO is crazy. I am afraid of sweat bees... Yellowjackets make me feel drunk when I get stung by them... Wasps and honey bees make me swell... He is crazy. That is what I call bold.

Kill the nest! I am super allergic not that I would ever be close to do anything on that wall but that thing is getting huge!

Absolutely do not kill that nest! Far more people are able to enjoy it being there vs. some ridiculously hard climb that only a few people in the world will ever be able to touch. If he didn't get stung into a pulp bolting that line he should be able to climb without a problem. I doubt itll ever be getting work on in the summer anyway

Not that I noticed but I could have missed it easily. I'll be back there this weekend and take a look that sounds cool

That wall is going to be a lot less pretty with a third line up the middle.

Sounds like you need to give up sport climbing.

it's a really beautiful and obvious (if futuristic) line. it will be cool to see if it goes.

Agree and agree. I hope the nest stays.
