Killer Diller (aka Silver Spurs)
|592 page views|
A really nice route that never lets up.
Start on a ledge below two thin vertical seams in a bulge about 30 feet up. Boulder your way up to a stance, plug in gear. Repeat until you are below the mentioned bulge. Rest and regroup. Plug in great gear. Pull the bulge on reachy moves. Continue fighting the building pump in your forearms to a rest. Now, make balancy moves as you work your way toward the anchors.
NOTE: This route was inadvertently listed in the Dixie Cragger's Atlas as Silver Spurs (2001 FA by Chris Watford). Rob Robinson has confirmed that he actually established the route in the late 80s as Killer Diller.
Starts 20 ft. left of Sole Searcher.
Small to medium cams, maybe some nuts if you're fast at placing them. New bolted anchors are now in place.

This route was not done prior to our ascent, and certainly not done in 1998. It required massive cleaning of the horizontals and a very large block/flake was pried off near the top that ANYONE who had done the FA would certainly have come across, as it rocked back and forth. A bit of revisionist history at play here, methinks. Therefore, Silver Spurs it shall remain.
