Description

This is a face climber's dreaming, climbing an impeccable swath of stone up Thunder's tallest wall. The climbing is continuous for the first fifty feet or so with a gradually building pump. Bring your tight shoes, strong fingers, and great footwork!

The route starts just left of the large, charred ponderosa and heads up a clean, intimidating face. The first few bolts will ease you into what becomes sustained difficult, thin face climbing for 4 bolts or so. The climbing is well-protected through the crux face climbing. After fifty feet or so, the route merges into the Schmausser Traverse at a prominent flake, clipping its last bolt, and joining it to the lip of the wall. Lower from nice long chains with fixed biners (they aren't booty, please leave them in place).

Location

On the Brown Wall, this is just to the right of The Schmausser Traverse and left of the large, burnt tree at the base of the wall.

Protection

Eight bolts, then about 3 small cams to protect the 5.6 climbing to the chains.
