One word: steep. That would sum it up. Killer Cave is home to some very steep routes. Pumpfest routes like Killer (12c), Mr. Majestyk (12d), The Throne (13a), and Bush Doctor (12a). The Killer Cave is also home to some of the hardest lines at sinks, like Virga (13c), Busload of Faith (14a), and Come Home Curly (13d/14a).
The approach is simple, just take the steep right trail that pops out right below the cave. Watch out for rattlesnakes on the trail and under boulders in the cave.

Cartoon Graveyard 5.12d 7c 28 IX E6 6b WY : Sinks Canyon : Killer Cave
Start just right of Killer. Do a hard opening boulder problem to a decent rest at a long draw then trend left and stay left when you get the option (Samara goes right). Finishes at a two bolt anchor just below the final roof. A recently added extension (5.13c and not as classic) continues above....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
