#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.
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).
