A climber about to finish the roof moves on Killer...


The Mondo's bigest overhang. Aaron Huey describes it as a "horizontal jug fest".
Fun technical climbing up to a roof then three mega burly clips through the roof to a bit of a run out to the chains. This one is WILD!

This route rules! Big moves with big holds out a big roof. Enough said, just climb it!

I remember hanging off the last bolt and later regretting not taking the ride from off the lip, looks like a clean fall. Then again it could be tricky to get back onto the route hanging out there in space and this one is definitely better cleaned by a second...

Sombody told me that the last hanger on Killer is gone! WTF? Check before you climb.

Confirmed! The last hanger is gone. This makes for a memorable runout to the anchors facing a 50 footer. An onsight to remember.

...not necessarily a "roof", rather 2 steep bulges. Ok route, though nothing memorable as the start is chossy with mediocre climbing and the the "good" climbing comprises maybe 10 moves or so.
