This incredible route climbs up the faint black streak to the left of Virga. Like most routes at the Thunderhead, the beginning is the business. A steep, strenuous start leads to a jug but no feet. Leaving the jug is a series of deadpoints between small, flat pockets where you could easily blow it. You'll get a decent rest with an awesome thread pocket before tackling the final sequential 5.12 headwall on beautiful stone.


This route is just to the left of Virga, or two to the right of In On The Killtaker. To access the start, climb the break in the chossy red stone below Stormchaser and traverse the ledge to the left to the start of Deluge.


7 bolts, open shut anchors. Stick-clip the first high bolt.
