Slide down into Dave's Cave between the start of Thump and the rockfall boulder. Sit start with matched hands on the lowest shelf on the rock fall boulder. Get a sweet heel-toe cam on the shelf behind your hands and rock up and left to the second flake shelf and make a big move to the top of the rockfall boulder. Press out onto the rock fall boulder and scramble up to the top of Thump.

Watch the tree at your back.


On The Backyard Boulder between the rockfall boulder and the start of Thump. Lowball squeezed between two boulders.
