Thunderbolt is a rare trap rock crack climb. Although the finger crack is short, it is a true CT adventure. Best to do in two short pitches to avoid rope drag. Two start options: Follow the original route description from the Nichols guide books, or alternatively climb Thor's to the foot ledge, set a belay (this is just after the crux roof), climb to the second roof on Thor's, traverse right all the way around the corner and into the right leaning finger crack on the exposed lichen covered face and to the top.
The business starts at the second roof of Thor's Hammer. Locate Thor's in the photos and look for the finger crack on the face to the right of the second roof.
Standard trad rack, with extra wide pieces (BD 4&5) and long slings to protect the traverse around the corner to the finger crack.
