Bees on Waimea .10d
« on: August 06, 2007, 07:29:10 pm »
Hey,  Just to let folks know  we climbed past a bunch of bees on waimea saturday.  They were buzzing around a hole near the horn that is out right of the 3rd bolt.  They didn't seem to be very aggressive and we climbed past them with no issues but  just a warning for the allergic folks out there.

I hear it's only .10a without the bees  ;).  Dale
If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

I hear it's 5.12a if you get stung and 5.12b if you are allergic.


edit: damn you JakeDatc, beat me by mere seconds.

Should the route now get a commitment grade like a trad climb because of the bees?

Speaking of 5.10d's with bees I saw a women get stung on Know Ethics last weekend.

Yah, she put her hand in a nest half way up. Bee careful.

On Saturday, I stuck my hand into a hornet's nest on Idiot's Deluxe.  This is the 10c to the far right of Meadows, or the far left of Parking Lot.  The nest is in the underside of a largish flake, about 1/2way up the route.

What did you do that for?

It seemed like a good idea at the time.  Apparently I'm not too bright. 

... Also, I didn't notice it until I stuck my hand in the crack, felt something crawling on my finger, and heard a loud buzzing.
