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.

Does the first five bolts of Killer, then goes straight up passing a thin crux section. From here you climb into the largest hueco in the cave and get a good rest on either a heel hook or a painful knee bar. The route used to stop before the last roof (called Mrs. Majestic, 5.12d, which sneaks right to the Cartoon Graveyard anchors) but now ends with an extension, passing a really hard sidepull sequence at the last bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
