Description 

A beautiful but terrifying line, Deadly Pillars climbs the lower face on the downhill pillar boulder. Start on a sloping jug and work up the arete to get your feet established on the jug. Now, make insecure, horrifying moves, up the less-steep face. As you notice the pads recede into the distance and your fingertips start sweating, steel yourself for the sloping topout.

Protection 

Multiple (!) pads.

Big props to Mike for sending this problem. Where I hemmed and hawed and eventually jumped off, Mike committed without a second thought. Yikes!
