Slayer is the third route from the left on the First Tier, just right of Iron Maiden. It starts by the large block at the base of the cliff. Follow the bolt line up and to the right passing a bulge down low (crux) and continuing to surmount the obvious roof above.


7 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Pumpy moves past the little overhang above the second bolt, and a committing clip at the third bolt; don't blow it or you're looking at a good fall. Aug 20, 2004

Ron-Of course by 'good fall' you mean a BAD fall, right? I seem to remember it's pretty committing to pull that section. This one's fun! Actually, this whole area is nice. Sep 13, 2004

Fun route. Crux is definitely figuring out the first roof and then the next couple of moves. Though I did it very differently then my partner, so there is more than one way to slay the beast! Nice climb with interesting moves. My first time in the area and was impressed overall. Aug 7, 2005

Good climbing in general, but rap bolting + clipping crux = completely lame. Sep 1, 2008

I took the fall on the third clip while stepping through. Not wearing helmet==== Idiocy. I flipped upside down and ended up staring about 18 inches from the starting rock.

BE CAREFUL on this one and don't try it when you're hungover, tired, or sloppy.

Otherwise, excellent route with creative opportunities. Jul 23, 2011

Agree with everybody else - be on your game, there are bolts where you really need them, but don't goof while clipping them. Falls with all the slack out would be undesirable.

Update - bring one or more long draws for rope drag. Aug 9, 2012

Bolts are where you need them to be, no more than that. The roof is a little spicy! Final bolt below roof is a little low for me! Dec 25, 2016

I echo the two comments above about being on your game down low. To me, the crux is between bolt #2 and #3. Sep 3, 2017
