This route is perfect for the one last push of the day, or if you are really good it's an awesome warm-up. It's located next to the Amphitheater The Morning Thunder rock makes up the south side of the Amphitheater. It is very easily seen from the road. From the trail, head right across some scrambling and up through a narrow gap onto the large belay ledge. Start on the left side of the face following the crack for about twenty feet. Continue up and right following a diagonal crack with some tricky moves. Finish about 15 feet below and right of the top of the rock. This route is a strenuous climb, don't expect an easy one-pitch 5.9. It pushes the limit of being a 10. Great climb, short, and fun!
