Description 

One word: steep. That would sum it up. Killer Cave is home to some very steep routes. Pumpfest routes like Killer (12c), Mr. Majestyk (12d), The Throne (13a), and Bush Doctor (12a). The Killer Cave is also home to some of the hardest lines at sinks, like Virga (13c), Busload of Faith (14a), and Come Home Curly (13d/14a).

Happily, for the non-mutant in all of us, Killer Cave includes curtain walls to the left and right with classic lines with angles closer to vertical. Some classics here include Action Candy (9+), Second Hand Nova (10d/11a), Harvest Moon (11a), and Elmo's Fish (10d).

The top of nearly all lines in the main cave keep shade all day. The sun travels across the wall from left to right, due to the curvature of the wall.

Getting There 

The approach is simple, just take the steep right trail that pops out right below the cave. Watch out for rattlesnakes on the trail and under boulders in the cave.

Left side of the Killer Cave. Starts from a cheater stone with a hard boulder problem to an obvious undercling. Sustained bouldering leads to a shake at the 6th bolt, then more sustained climbing through steep rock on good holds. Finishes on the "throne," a big ledge that you can sit on if you want to....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
