This one's a good warm-up for Thunder Struck. The crux is at the beginning, so stick clip the first bolt. It's a very hard 10b. When I climb it, I always put the stick back in the bush to the right of the route.


Right of Thunder Struck


4 bolts to anchor.


I did this route for the first time 4/16/17 and thought the bottom was quite difficult. I thought it was much harder than 10b at the bottom so it does seem possible that the route has changed. Apr 26, 2017

Climbed this on the morning of 7/9/16 and 10b seemed right. Didn't see any obvious broken holds though so maybe we were on it pre-break. Jul 19, 2016

Was at the NRG this weekend, someone at the campground mentioned that a hold at the beginning of the route had recently broken off, pushing the grade of the beginning of the climb to 5.10d/11a. Can anyone corroborate? Jul 11, 2016
