DescriptionThis is a terrific route up the prominent, golden orange pillar and finger crack on the upper right side of the second buttress. Aiming for the pillar, climb about 100 feet of easy rock, and then tackle the right side of a prominent bulge via some face moves and a good crack (5.8/5.9). Continue up the crack to a good stance and a two-bolt anchor below the obvious, orange plaque split by a finger crack.
The second pitch climbs a bit of fun, moderate ground to a steep, left-facing corner with a tricky bulge. After a great rest, step left into the finger crack and power straight up with good pro and excellent locks and face holds. When the crack ends, face climb past two bolts to an anchor at the top. It is somewhere in the low to mid-5.10 range.
It looks like 1990s-era bolts. Hopefully someone will provide the name and take credit for this great route... and let us know if there are other hidden gems on Thorodin!
