Description

Approximately 100' to the right of the Reptile Butress is another... well, big brown buttress! You can't miss this one, 8 bolts take you up the left side of a brown prow.

Protection

8 bolts plus the anchor next to the dead tree.

Really good - definitely a couple hard moves. 5.12a seems about right. Great stone. Oct 15, 2017

I broke a hold @ 6th bolt. Probably not any more difficult now though. Sweet gnar the whole way. Aug 14, 2013

I had more success on this climb than on many other routes at Thunder Ridge. I think it may have been because I was terrified of falling! My belayer was purposefully not looking at me, doing so would have caused him to stare directly into the sun! This is a good one for crisp temps.

One of my favorites at Thunder Ridge! Jun 7, 2011

Excellent technical movement on incredible rock. Superb! The mantel at the roof before the headwall is a tad easier for shorter folks. Jun 10, 2009

This route is one of the very best at the Ridge. Steep and clean- technically engaging and continuous - this one is as good as they come . Apr 30, 2008
