The event will celebrate 20 years of Access Fund ownership and officially present Golden Cliffs to Jefferson County Open Space.
Nice little climb to do with friends that haven't climbed a lot, because you can try to crank the 3ft roof on a top rope...and your new partners get used to belaying you.

I thought Killian's Dead was a lot of fun. 5.6 lead that takes good gear the whole way. There is a 6 foot section of OW that is difficult to protect, but before and after there is pro. Two ring anchor for lowering and setting TR.
Fun little trad line. Taking the roof straight through instead of working the jugfest right-side offers more of a .9 (I really like this harder variant - really good crack moves); the crux .6 crack move is really committing for a lead, just trust the feet.
Great climb for the grade. Solid gear all the way up.

A little stiff for a 5.6. This has a small bulge, and it is tough to protect in the offwidth section. 5.7 in my opinion! 5.7- if it exists? It's definitely as tough as John Adam's Apple (which is to the right of this route)....
Great 5.6 trad climb! I would agree it's a stiff 5.6; Iraqi Road is much easier for similar rating. Recommend placing the first pro (size 1 Camalot works wonders) just north of the roof, agreeing with tom303, to avoid rope drag.
