Thunder Buttress

The last major formation before Sundance, Thunder Buttress is a three to four pitch rock split by a long discontinuous ledge, the bottom half being a slab much like the Pear, and the top half being steep, blocky and plagued with lichens and loose rock. It certainly isn't a classic crag, but you're guaranteed to have it all to yourself.

Getting There

Hike to the base of the Pear and head west for about a quarter mile (no trail) until you find Thunder Buttress, or continue on the main trail toward Sundance and bushwhack straight up the slope.
