Description 

Bagdhad is the arching line between Killer and Endeavor to Persevere. It was rated 5.13- in Greg Collins 1991 guidebook to Sinks Canyon. Later, people were thinking 5.12d.

The start is hard, but not as bad as freeing Killer's initial moves. Most climbers will prefer the amazing holds of Killer. However, for those who can't ignore the feeling that aiding the start of Killer is a taint, Bagdhad is a less difficult way to completely free a direct line up Killer Cave.

Hard climbing up and leftward brings you to a slightly scary dyno on merely vertical rock. The really big pocket holds finally show up under the summit roof.


Protection 

Ten bolts. Get on the sport climber diet too.
