Description 

A0 start just right of Killer. 4 routes begin here, Nirvana is the second from the right. A crimpy crux shared by all 4 leads to a long draw. From a rest here you trend right to an overhanging head wall with positive pockets and edges. A (relatively) hard move off an undercling to the second to last bolt provides the redpoint crux and may make it 5.13. Pumpy and sustained.


Location 

Killer cave, as described above.


Protection 

Lots of bolts, the first 6 or so are fixed, and the last 8 or so are usually in situ.

There's also a pretty thin mono move on the clean section of rock between the long diagonal and the juggy headwall. I thought that was the crux, if there is one. This is one of those classic continuous lines that is basically crux-less. Would be a great choice for a first 5.13.
