Rolling Thunder climbs a long sweep of overhanging stone, mostly on huge jugs, with a short and distinct crux moving from the 3rd to the 5th bolt.

Scramble up the pocketed ledges to begin. There is a bolt to the right which is presumably a belay bolt. Long reaches and a few throws between jugs lead to a huge diving board below the third bolt and a good shake. Thin crimps lead up to the base of the crux roof. A hard crank on a two-finger pocket and good footwork will get you to a set of jugs at the lip of the roof, where its reasonable to clip the 5th bolt. Throw a leg up, grab a small crimp, and dyno for jugs above. Once established above the roof, rest jugs abound. Shake out before cruising more jugs to the chains.


# 10 on the photo topo. 5th bolted route from the right end of the wall, just left of "Never Saw It Coming". Also the second bolted line right of the intermittent seam/crack of "Fujimata".


7 bolts, 2 BA. The 4th bolt is for dogging. It would be very difficult to clip this bolt on redpoint.
