Bucking Chute is wrangled dead center between the Rodeo and Slippery Nipple on the right side of the Quarry Wall. Start by laying-back a left facing bulging crack to a horizontal undercling. Make some exciting chicken-head mantle combo moves to the crack that diverts from Slippery Nipple. Slippery Nipple line departs right shortly before Bucking Chute meets the prominent lie-back crack that splits the right Quarry Wall. Follow the crack until it ends and then follow the three bolt line through exciting slab moves. Continue up through a roof protected by a #2 or #3 camalot and go to the Slippery Nipple anchor.


Follow the trail to the Quarry Wall, and immediately upon reaching the wall, the route will start just left of Slippery Nipple. The starting crack is left of the huge, steel mining bolt below the lieback crack.


Gear to #3 Camalot, 3 bolts, and an anchor.

Thanks for the great addition, guys! It feels a bit committing starting up the steeper laybacks, since the crack is pretty flaring, and you can't see where your next good piece will be. Luckily, gear appears right when you need it. Fun route! Oct 8, 2017

I thought this and the next three routes to the right were all super enjoyable, good rock, excellent climbs. Thunder Ridge is so good it's hard to give them all 4 stars, but they're def worth climbing. Oct 15, 2017

Save a #0.5 Camalot for the top of the flake! This felt hard for Thunder Ridge 11a, but it could have been the foothold decomposing underfoot at the crux. With more traffic, this will clean up nicely! Oct 21, 2017
