Directions:  Hike left along the cliff past Robinson Crusoe. As the trail goes uphill to Wanderlust take a left on a separate trail. The first route you come to is Easy As Pudding Pie. The climb starts on the top of the obvious blocky buttress.
Description: A yellowjacket stung Joe when he was belaying Al as Al was drilling the bolts, hence the name. This is a nice climb with holds and bolts exactly where you want them.
    Pitch 1: Climb easily up on top of the buttress. Clip a bolt and then climb up past 4 more to the slab. Pad up the slab (unprotected 5.3) to a 2-bolt ring anchor above a roof. 30 meters

Gear: draws
Descent: rappel the route
