Description 

Arete on the right side of the Killer cave. Hard bouldering to the fourth bolt, probably v8ish with the hardest part getting to the 4th clip. Falling here would require an attentive belayer to keep you off the large boulder at the base. There is another 13a crux pulling over the overhang onto the main part of the arete between bolt 6 and 8. Decent shake to the left of bolt 9. There is a 5.12 move a few bolts higher where you could definitely fall off on the redpoint burn.

A variation called Dr. Endeavor (5.13a) skips the boulder problem at the bottom by climbing the first 3 bolts of Bush Doctor and then traversing to the right out the underclings to meet up with the 4th bolt. This is a 3 star route in its own right.

This is an exceptional climb with wicked position. Boulder problem at the bottom is burly! the first few bolts are the crux, but several other moves along the way could easily spit off those pumped. Rests are not amazing but come here and there, just in time. All of 5.13c for sure.

Gets my vote as the best hard sport route in the Lander area. Has a bit of everything and requires a number of diverse abilities to send.
