Description

This is one of the nicer lines at this crag. It ascends a slab to an overlap in the center of the northwest aspect of this crag.

The start is kind of weird. There is a bolt clippable from the ground on the right, ignore it. Ascend the right side of this nook past a bolt. Moving up you could clip a bolt on this block on the right, but I wouldn't. Step up onto a nice slab past 3 more bolts to an overlap. Choice time. You could force a double undercling, get your feet up move over the overlap or you can move slightly right and more gracefully surmount the overlap. Continue up to the 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks on the left, 70', or go up higher to yet another 2 bolt anchor, ~85-90'. The higher set of anchors will add rope drag.

Others have provided a name, Thunderhead. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

Location

Go up the obvious slab to the overlap on the northwest aspect of this face. It is just left of the "ear route" which starts on less-appealing terrain with rock scars.

Protection

8-9 bolts.
