Location: WY : Lander Area : Sinks Canyon : Killer Cave : The Throne (5.13a/b)

Comments: From the undercling to the top is great climbing. From the ground to the undercling is some of the worst climbing in the killer cave. If you're going to drill a pocket, make it good, and if you're going to chip crimps, make them good.

Comments: The massive jug that one makes the drive by to (and kneescums off of) has since broken quite a bit, making the drive by harder and the kneescum very hard to get...for me, it's easiest to not even try the scum and just rock climb that crux.

Comments: Now starts from the ground (or rather from a small rock stack). An obvious jug pocket leads into a few 2 finger pockets that take you to the spot where people originally A0'd to.

Comments: The "original" from the ground start is now perpetually wet and looks to never be drying out (at least the past year). The stack start is off a right hand edge and a left hand mono.


Location: TN : The Tennessee Wall : T-Wall West : Psycho Path (5.13b)

Comments: This route is deserving of a better description:

One of the few, if only, routes where you get to pull on two finger pockets.

Begin with a 30ft section of chossy, but somehow solid, rock to get to the first bolt...you can place a number 3 along the way if you're worried about this. From this first bolt, you begin a 3 bolt section of pockets and slopey edges that lead to a dead point to a good iron-patina'd jug. You will clip both the 3rd and 4th (normally a long sling) from this rest. Sid... more >>

Comments: Following the line of weakness is the only way to climb this route...2 hand moves left of the bolt line and you're in jugs. 12a.

Comments: Bottom of route has been rebolted...no more bolts sticking out. It has also been severely cleaned up. Still chossy...but not terrible. This route from the 4th bolt on is 4 stars anywhere.

Comments: Best 13- at Tieranny. Unsure why is gets docked a star in the guide book...along with Canyon Man, which is the 2nd best route at Tieranny. Way better than the steeper thuggy routes that all get five stars.

Comments: Funny...the "traverse" is not hard at all, although committing, not hard. It's the moves off of the ledge right after that are the hardest and mildly awkward.

Comments: Crux, for me, was matching crack hold, cutting feet and staying on the wall. Mantle is rough too...don't take it for granted, get it wired.

Comments: yep. chainsaw massacre. quite boring as well.


Location: GA : Rocktown : The Orb : Kurk the Roach (V1)

Comments: Kurk the Roach is actually not the problem you are referring to. It is to the left of this problem you describe. Comes out a roof on edges to a sloping pinch, then moves through more slopers and a really cool soft ball-like hold at the top.

Comments: Copying straight from the guidebook to this website isn't exactly the best form, IMO. Tell us something that we don't get from the book...that is assuming you have even climbed the route.
