This is on the right side of the wall. It uses 3 bolts - then small gear. It is smearing down low -thin face style.

Fun route, my first in the area. This route will let you know just how well your shoes stick to the rock at Thunder.

Crazy high first clip, and even if stick-clipped, there's a good chance of hitting the ground if you blow the second clip. This rig felt like 5.10 R, even after getting in the groove of the slabby climbs in this area. I'm not against spicy pitches, especially if established ground up, but 5.9 climbers should be warned here. The Haas guidebook seems to use PG-13 and R ratings rarely, only in the most severe cases.
