Road & nearby private property & COVID-19 Closure - now open
As of Nov. 6, 2020: per Johanna Protheroe: COVID-19 update: Thunder Ridge is open, although there are two considerations: 1) The landowners have asked climbers not to use their private road to enter Thunder Ridge. 2) As of July 1, 2020, all persons 18 and older must possess a valid Colorado HUNTING or FISHING LICENSE to access Colorado Parks and Wildlife land. THIS IS WHERE YOU PARK ON THIS LAND.
#2 is a little tricky considering the shoulder and the crag is on United State Forest Service land (Free), while the PARKING is on CPW land.
Info can be found here: pikespeakclimbersalliance.o… As of April 5th, the Pikes Peak Climber's Alliance announced that Thunder Ridge is CURRENTLY CLOSED due to COVID-19. Please respect this closure, and check in with PPCA on updates as COVID-19 stay at home orders and impacts reduce over the coming months
Please do your best to maintain good relationships with the people who own the land in this area. Do not drive your vehicle past the "private property" sign. Do not go up to the house to ask for directions to the crag. Do not ride your bike down the road. Please move immediately to the side of the road if any landowners are approaching in their vehicles.
Unknown V3 problem on the back of the Cheat Death Boulder. Start on the obvious horizontal rail, and trend up and rightward on patina edges in seams. This has great rock and movement but is a bit short for classic status. It is a sweet warm-up for the harder boulders and routes in the canyon.
It is on the backside of the Cheat Death Boulder. Another unknown moderate starts 10 feet right on jugs and is around V2.
