Rockfax Description
Steep, sustained, and the scene of much frustration. Start below the wide central crack. Gain the main crack via a smaller crack to its right. Climb this strenuously, but with good gear, to a bulge near the top. This provides the crux, above which is an easier slab. © Rockfax

βeta: Hi all, if someone is climbing King Bee today and you find a pearl earring at the base it belongs to me! Lost it yesterday. They were my mums so bit sad I lost one! Please keep an eye out and drop me a line if you spy it, I suspect it’s long gone :( I had it at the top of the route!
