Right of The Last Daze Of Pompeii, find an obvious, right-facing dihedral that ends at a roof 25' up. Gain this dihedral, negotiating the fallen dead tree however you like, and surmount the roof at a splitter little finger crack. At the horizontal crack (10' above the roof), move left to the right-leaning crack system. Follow this system for 25’ to where you could step right on a small ledge to join the Apocalyptic Lightning Storm. This is where the ground-up FA was forced to exit. But the originally envisioned, and eventually completed, line goes straight up. At this point, eschew the tempting ledge out right, and head straight up to a very shallow, right-facing flake which, after a couple cruxy moves, leads to a horizontal crack with good gear. Move 6' left on this horizontal to another vertical crack that peters out and leaves you with a couple sets of perplexing moves to get to the anchor.

On the proud ground-up effort, Nate bailed right into Apocalyptic Lightning Storm. Only after toprope rehearsal did I successfully lead the originally envisioned line on 8-9-08. So, this line could certainly be considered a headpoint.


To the right of The Last Daze Of Pompeii is a right-facing corner capped by a small roof 25’ off the ground. The start is somewhat guarded by a fallen dead tree.


Standard rack, including RPs and offset nuts, up to hand-sized cams. The key piece before the crux runout was an offset nut (brassie) for me.

Two-bolt lower-off anchor.
