Reptile 5.10. Perfect stone. The area classic.

Road & nearby private property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Reptile climbs the chocolate colored section of slightly overhanging plates to the ledge midway up the wall. It has really good gear on PERFECT stone. It is easy to see why this was the very first pitch done at Thunder.

Protection 

Cams and wires. Anchors on the ledge.

This is a pumpy route. Save your strength on the bottom, and get high quick so you have the energy you need. The holds are solid and slightly overhanging. Take small to medium gear.

Link this into reptile tears for the full 4 stars, really good. Good gear if you like stoppers.

The Reptile to Reptile Tears link makes for a four star classic! This is one of the best single pitches I have ever done.

Surprisingly pumpy! All you really need for this climb is wires and a couple finger pieces! Stellar route!
