#2 is a little tricky considering the shoulder and the crag is on United State Forest Service land (Free), while the PARKING is on CPW land.

As of April 5th, the Pikes Peak Climber's Alliance announced that Thunder Ridge is CURRENTLY CLOSED due to COVID-19. Please respect this closure, and check in with PPCA on updates as COVID-19 stay at home orders and impacts reduce over the coming months.
Please do your best to maintain good relationships with the people who own the land in this area. Do not drive your vehicle past the "private property" sign. Do not go up to the house to ask for directions to the crag. Do not ride your bike down the road. Please move immediately to the side of the road if any landowners are approaching in their vehicles.
Be wary of potential rockfall, try to minimize rope drag, and place gear to protect the second. The 2 bolts at the start eliminate placing gear behind a giant block your belayer may be standing below. A bolt on the alligator skin face above the roof is in line with a groove that will reduce rope drag/abrasion and will keep the rope off the footholds at the lip. Feel free to skip the bolts.
