Pt. 10,772 (The Beehive), South Face. In September John Gallagher, Erik Guss and "AJ" Helms hiked into the Beehive Basin to do an unknown route next to The Bulge. When we got there, a line immediately to the right of the bulge appeared more promising. Erik took the first pitch, a nice discontinuous crack to a small roof. I took the next two pitches. They turned out to be dirty and loose. The last pitch to the summit ridge was low fifth class; the final ridge was fourth class for 200 yards. There is a summit register. We entered the route as Two's Company, Three Is A Crowd (II 5.7+ R).
