And bee wary - beeware. Or you may become toast(*)

I had to look at that one 3 times before getting it! (I'm thick)*

*(Yet another brilliant punning reference to [1] thick honey, [2] 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 ?

In reply to GrahamD: Would be good to see more bumblies there again, wouldn't it?

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.

Did four routes on Garage Buttress recently and it was 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

> mostly due to having a large apiary index.

And don't forget their spring loaded comb-ing units.

Bees around route 6? Weird, logbook says Unloaded is 6c+...

It was meant to be a joke (not a very obvious one I admit). You know, bees around route 6...6 bees...6bee...6b

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.
