Description 

The Quarry is a South facing crag with routes 270 degrees around it. On the West side and up the hill is the West-facing Waffle Wall, which segues into the Quarry wall on the South face. To the right and facing East is the For Real Wall, and further uphill are The Solarium and The Cooler. Between the Waffle Wall and the Quarry Wall on the West side is a black streak, our reference point and site of a five bolt 5.12 called "Not Even".

Getting There 

Off the old road and up the first cairned trail lie two major formations. The Quarry is the left of the two, and the trail at the base of the cliffs will take you right to it.

No Pressure is a new line that climbs up beautiful features in a lonely, white face with black streaks on either side. Starts juggy, and gets thinner and thinner until you grab a muffin to clip the anchors. This was my first route that I've put up at Thunder. Bolted it on lead from free stances, but had previously top roped the route a week prior to the lead to find bolt placements. With that said, I want to thank Kirsten for her patience, and support of my love for Thunder. Also Kevin and Gle...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
