Powderfinger, on the left side of the Killer Cave....


Powderfinger is another great warmup for those seeking early morning sun. By mid-day the route is baking, but it receives shade in the afternoon/evening. As a relatively new line, Powderfinger is less polished than many of the other routes on this wall. These factors, combined with movement that is fun and engaging, make Powderfinger a great option at the grade.

Begin below the left side of a small roof ~ 10 heet up. Balance between thin gastons & edges to a good jug at the roof. Lieback past the left side of the roof to reach some good jugs. Fun pockets and edges lead up the lower-angle wall above.


On the wall left of the Killer Cave proper, between "Sign of the Times" and "After the Goldrush". Begins just left of a small, low roof.


Bolts to 2 BA. Stick clip recommended.

Didn't feel harder than Elmo's Fish, just more technical instead of powerful. Definitely easier than Harvest Moon!
