DescriptionA 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.
FA:Jim Thurmond '87
