Denver climber, Bill Ballace, on Bushdoctor's head...

Description 

Bush Doctor shares its start and 5-6 bolts with Blood Line(11d), before heading left up an overhanging headwall (not the farthest left line - a harder 12 called ??). The bottom crux involves a somewhat painful handjam, some sequential moves, followed by laybacking with popcorn limestone feet. After a mellow section up a left facing dihedral, you approach the turning point between Bush Doctor and Blood Line. The upper crux has some long pulls, generally on positive holds. Fight through the pump to the anchors.


Location 

Located on the right side of the Killer Cave proper near where the right approach trail from the main parking lot hits the cliff. Climbs just left of the STEEP prow that is Endeavor to Persevere (13c). Starts on a block to reach the first holds. Very short folks may have trouble reaching these holds without a further stepstool - an old tree trunk.


Protection 

11-12 bolts to anchors
