/ BEWARE!!!! Bee's at Stoney Middleton.
Nasty litle buggers once disturbed!!!!!!
They will leave you alone if you beehive yourself.
Sorry. Somebody was going to do that.
> They will leave you alone if you beehive yourself.
And bee wary - beeware. Or you may become toast(*)
(*Incredibly bad contrived pun connection to 'honey')
I'm combing the dictionary for a suitable response.

I had to look at that one 3 times before getting it! (I'm thick)*
*(Yet another brilliant punning reference to  thick honey,  thick-sliced toast)
It was totally inappropriate to hive off sections of Stoney for sports routes anyway.

Some people get a real buzz out of them.
If you ring the police non emergency number they will recommend a local bee keeper to contact who will come and remove them.
Do you think it will turn Stoney back into a honey pot venue, then ?
I used to wax lyrical about it, but then it got too much polish.
Its no good me droning on. I think the queen needs to make a decision.
Not in front of the workers!
There are a few routes at Stoney with a sting in the tail if I remember correctly.
Sweet venue though.
No point brooding on it.
(this thread is shaping up to rival the dead cow one...)
Did four routes on Garage Buttress recently and it was very busy with swarms of climbers.
>...very busy with swarms of climbers.
Were they on Wind-hover? Or jam-ming?
I always said that bolting routes would create a honey pot.
I'm told that bees are very good at climbing, mostly due to having a large apiary index.
Not just good, they're super
And don't forget their spring loaded comb-ing units.

Bees around route 6? Weird, logbook says Unloaded is 6c+...
In theory this thread shouldn't have been able to get off the ground, but yet somehow it does?
It was meant to be a joke (not a very obvious one I admit). You know, bees around route 6...6 bees...6bee...6b
better watch out then, else could get into a sticky situation ...
Thorax for the warning!

*sharp intake of breath*
Never, ever explain a joke. Just move on gracefully.
Blimey I thought my puns were bad.
Actually I've got thorax syndrome in my wrists from my last jaunt up Point Five Gully. I'll have to bee careful while going about my beezness.
