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).
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.
