Cartoon Graveyard heads pretty much straight up to...


Start just right of Killer. Do a hard opening boulder problem to a decent rest at a long draw then trend left and stay left when you get the option (Samara goes right). Finishes at a two bolt anchor just below the final roof. A recently added extension (5.13c and not as classic) continues above.


Killer Cave, just right of Killer

This route is so fun, one of the best climbs I have ever been on.

I was on this route today and the old two bolt anchor below the last roof is gone. I assume this was the original .12d finish, now you make awkward and difficult moves involving a huge span and a slap for an undercling flake. Poor feet and a weird sequence lead to the only anchor I could find. Is this the new and forced .13c? finish?
