The red rope is hanging on Flash Flood 5.11a


This route is the second route from the left on the smaller bulged formation to the left of the main Thunderhead wall. Begin with fun overhanging climbing on jugs that quickly give way to a tricky technical crux on incut two finger pockets. Continue up on fun big moves between good pockets and edges. Arguably the best warm-up at the Thunderhead.

A pretty good warm-up for the thunderhead. Can also become a project if you are not used to steep climbing. If you find the thunderhead a little intimidating this one is a good introduction. Good for whatever your skill level is because of the friendly holds and its short crux.
