Overview
Rap in from above via two new bolts located on far eastern end of the Killer Pillar formation. This anchor can be backed up (for convenience) via cams and medium nuts from 3/8 to 2”. In preparation for rapping, and when throwing your rope off the summit, be aware of the tree at the base – you wouldn’t want to snag your line in this. At the start of this pitch is a sloping ledge. Alternatively, you can lower to the lowest bolt equipped with a chain and prepare to TR from there. Begin with chimney climbing between the pillar and nearby formation. As the chimney widens, you transition to xenolith climbing on a gradually steepening wall. Holds are generally positive but the pump builds. The hardest move is likely at the top (bolt 8) of the pitch via a powerful undercling/highstep combination. Leading this line is a bit awkward as the bolts are placed to the right of the most natural climbing line.
