Enduro, almost. Start by aiding to the 1st bolt. Launch into the crux via technical and powerful pulls on the left angling seam, edges, and pockets. Move left onto the classic pocket pulling headwall. Crank the roof and hold on for the wild ride through the killer pump to the anchors. Classic moves on the 'biggest holds you'll ever fall off'.
Located in the central part of the Killer Cave left of the where the trail comes up beneath Bushdoctor (12a). Walk left across the level portion of the cave, jump up on the 1st big dinner plate boulders and find the line that starts via aid and travels left up the seam. Now drool like a fool.
Often there will be a fixed rope hanging off the alternate 1st bolt. 12 bolts with fixed draws to anchors.
Half the fun of Killer! The ride down! When down,...
