A roof crack over 30ft long. The FA Jim Thurmond trained at his home for 3 months on Oak boards elevated on saw horses. He finally nailed it and named it Thurmonuclear's Crack, in an obvious play on spelling to insure the FA. The route has been climbed only twice, both by Jim Thurmond from the ground up. Several people have since tried to climb the route and only ended in failure including Adam Grosowski, Todd Skinner, and Tim Toula.

When walking in the log trail from bridge stay right on trail.Walk along trail noticing the creek 150yrds to the right,at the first hard right bend in the creek walk another hundred feet seeing boulders stacked up by small tree on left.The is the trailhead to the north end of the bluffs and also (thermos Dome) Walk strait up trail until you run into the cliffs.look up and left and that is thermonuclear crack.
