Dow WilliamsYoung Fire, 5.10c**  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 15, 2016

Dow Williams

This is a link up of the bolted Young Guns (5.11d) and the ultra-classic trad route of Bird of Fire (5.10a). After the first four bolts on Young Guns and obviously before the 5.11 finish, traverse right through the huecos to finish on Bird of Fire. Very good sport climb finishing on the best move or two of Bird of Fire. The crux is approximately between the 2nd and 3rd bolts as I recall. Typical Jtree vertical slab: thoughtful footwork and intricate searching for finger edges.

Date Climbed: Oct 15, 2016

I led all the Bee routes to the left of the Dolphin Corner. A new one that is not in any guide book as of 2016 goes up the arete just to the left of the Dolphin. Mixed with a piece of gear or two in the middle. A few bolts to start and a piton and bolt to finish. Crux off the ground and another slab crux at top. Maybe 5.9/10a. Dead Bees is fully bolted. Has a sandbagged finish on steep slab. Two moves near two bolts, both 5.10 vs 5.9. Nectar is an easy solo for Jtree 1000 route club, but the descent down the left side had a bolt removed that helped to protect an exposed steep downclimb section. I descended the west side of the formation, no worries, maybe mid 5th downclimbing without the same exposure as the east side. The Bee's Knees way more 5.9 than Dead Bees. Worthy route with some cool arete moves. It was my favorite of the group. Bee Gees has had the upper bolt(s) cut. Very stiff climbing through the remaining 3. I traversed right into Bees Knees to finish.
