Deadman's Reach follows the Green line (Cannonball...


Cannonball's kid brother climbs the same corner system to ultimately surmount the towering roof on the right end of the Killer Cave. The two climbs are quite similar, but Deadman's reach is a bit more difficult leading up to the roof, and while the roof business is much shorter, its also more burly (albeit, less pumpy).

Struggle up the Baghdad corner to reach a no-hands rest at a detached flake about halfway up the corner. Bust left from the top of this flake, following the second line of bolts from the right. Easy pulls up the vertical wall lead to a nice, slightly overhanging flowstone section below the roof (about 5.12a to here?). A zombie span leads to the lip of the roof and a desparate struggle to turn the lip.


At the right end of the deepest part of the Killer Cave, beginning up a left-facing dihedral immediately above a small rock tunnel.


~10-12 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor that currently sports fixed biners. This one is a real b!tch to clean, so best to lure your second up it after you send.
