I can't imagine he has any plans of manhandling that hive. the bolts are well left and if we was able to bolt it safely, the climbing part will be a non-issue (even with the incessant screaming).

Agree and agree. I hope the nest stays.
I agree too, and I am allergic to bee stings. I think he is crazy for getting close to it, but I see no point in tearing it down.

Interesting. Written for domestic bee farming, but I am sure it is applicable...

Usually a honey bee will only sting to protect the hive. Of course there are rare exceptions. A small percentage of folks allergic to stings are allergic to honey bee stings. If you swell up as a result of a honey bee sting that just means that your immune system is working properly. If you are truly allergic to the sting you will go into anaflactic shock and could possibly die.

When placing a hive you want to make sure the area directly in front of the entrance is free of human activity. The foraging bees tend to exit the hive and fly in a straight line for a while before they get their bearings figured out. I have been hit and stung in this situation several times.

I have seen the hive several times, but could not tell where the entrance was. If the entrance faces the new route there could be a problem. There shouldn't be a problem this time of year unless the temps are above 40 deg F and the sun is shining on the hive at which time some of the workers will haul out the poop.

I also hopes nobody messes with the hive. If anyone does mess with the hive I hope they get stung until they die.

"World's best sport climber gets stung to death by swarm of honey bees" would be an interesting headline

I will personally hunt down whoever destroys the hive (if it even happens) and do that thing in that awful Nicholas Cage movie (basket-something?) where they put a mask/net over your head and fill it with bees. Consider yourself warned.

I'm sure a biologist can explain it better than I can- but bees are essential to the ecosystem (and our food supply) and they're just now coming back from some sort of bee-virus-plague thing (official term). If your goal is to destroy the environment so it's easier for you to climb- you shouldn't be outside anyways- climb in the gyms if you don't want to deal with bees or bugs or copperheads.

Easy you bee lovers. No one is taking down the beehive.

piggie, if we were consistent in our rage, all our posts would be as long as yours - the tubes aren't big enough for that. ;)

H8ers. Mike Doyle has been suggesting a softness in the upper grades for a while. It would have been one thing if Ondra had just gone on a downgrade binge and left. But seeing that he is been inspired to up the ante on our rock is worthy of much respect. I remember when a young Sharma came to the Lode, left, and declared RRG is nothing but an overhanging crimp ladder. That was a stigma that hung over us until RocTrip.

Perhaps we can make up for the high-end softness by having the hardest 5.11's around! ;)

Ondra should go check out the Death Star, something tells me it may not get the same downgrade treatment.

I believe Ondra fell from the last move at the anchors on his onsight attempt of death star
