Dead Deer follows the obivous crack system to the left of Iced Tea. Head up past a wide section and jam the twin crack system to the top.

Descend from a 2-bolt anchor....


Follow the 4th class approach to the upper ledge system. Head right on more 4th class ledges to a tree below the climb.


Single set of cams to #4 C4....

This climb was hard for me. I used a handstack followed by a fist jam to get past the crux. Smaller hands may have more difficulty. Gillett's description made it sound like the crux would be twin finger cracks, but the finger cracks are relatively easy and also are not really cracks, but rather occasional openings in parallel seams.

I used a gray Camalot (new #4, old #3.5) at the wide section followed by a #2 in the back of the crack. Above that there is an optional but bomber new #5/old #4.5 (purple) before entering the finger cracks. Nov 30, 2009

We found a 2 bolt anchor left of the route just past the big tree. The anchors are 5-6 feet up, so it would be easy to walk right on past them. The anchors are directly below the start of Twin Pillar. Nov 24, 2016
