Comments: To add to Tod's response, I will say that there are no signs posted down there (old or new). That doesn't make it OK to be there, just saying it would be easy to mistakenly climb in the affected area without realizing it. I left that closure info out of my book, because the rangers I spoke to numerous times over the years didn't know anything about it, and I couldn't find anything on their website. Hubbel printed a closure note in his Platte guidebook for the area, but he didn't remember where h... more >>

Comments: FWIW, according to Scott, he never redpointed the route, although he did bolt it. I redpointed it in August of 2011, which Scott believed was the first "send" of the route. Even so, great job on Scott's part and real "route credit" goes to him.

Comments: Just glad you got on it, Matt. It took several visits to get those ring bolts out, and I'm just happy to see it wasn't for nothin'.

Comments: Joe Crotty, TJ Brumme, and I replaced the bolts on both pitches with 4" stainless steel glue-ins. We were able to reuse several of the same holes, but a few of the other bolts broke while we were trying to extract them, so we had patch and drill a few new holes. Thanks to the BCC for supplying the hardware

Comments: Someone chopped the last bolt, which doesn't change the safety or anything. The bolt was placed on top of the rock (where your feet stand hands free) and served as a one-bolt anchor. Currently you have to top out and build an anchor on hand-sized cams and then rap the Quivering Quill anchor.

Comments: This is actually Lack Crack. Lack Crack and Moderate #2 names should switch on this site as they're backwards. It is clearly labeled in a photo in Cheyney's guidebook.

Comments: Moritz B., could you have accidentally tried to go straight to the Reservoir instead of right to stay on FS-211? That happens at mile 2.0. There's no gate at 2.2 though.

I saw your post so I checked it out yesterday - the entire road is open. No locked gates for over 15 miles on 211. I'd also find it hard to believe they'd lock 211 since they never have in the past, plus there's the ranch that uses that road.

Government shutdown maybe? Who knows. Anyway, the drive/approach is good to g... more >>

Comments: Not that it really matters as those guys can never remember who did what (ha! I know you're going to read this Glenn and Kevin!), but I was told the name was Spank Me and the FA was Kevin and Steve Cheyney.

Glenn - thanks for adding the anchor on top.

Comments: There is a new rappel route from the summit. It was installed to help mitigate the degradation of the standard walk off, which is in major disrepair. There are two chain anchors near the summit, basically between the top of Empor and Northwest Corner. There is another rap station on a small ledge between those two routes for a second rappel. Two raps with one 60-meter rope gets you down.

Comments: All the bolts on this route were replaced in early June by myself, Dan Hickstein, and Greg Miller. Hardware was supplied by the ASCA and BCC. Please support these organizations if you don't already.

Comments: I tightened the loose ASCA summit rap bolt yesterday John Collis mentioned and replaced the old, second bolt. Both bolts now have new chain on them. The new bolt/chain was provided by the BCC and the ASCA supplied the hanger.

Comments: Tod, I fully support mountainproject and I add routes on here all the time, including to areas we write books for, but I never take a description from someone else's book and regurgitate it on here without any first hand knowledge of the route. I'm not doubting your prolific climbing experience, even with trad climbing. And maybe you did this (and the other) routes and our book helped "jog" your memory. If so, I'm glad the guidebook is useful to you. However, I'd like to remind you of what I tol... more >>

Comments: The information at the top of this page, including directions, has been updated. This includes information about the public vs. private access. Please take a look at it before you venture out to Thunder. Also, do not drive the gated road - this is entirely private property, not a closed FS road. The landowners are ok with climbers walking the road (despite the newly-posted signs), just not driving or mountain biking it. Lastly, metal signs will be added to the parking lot very soon.
