To keep this at 5.7, the direct start climbs the steeper slab just left of pine tree to the high first bolt just under the small (1') roof. Step through the small roof and continue up the center of the licheny slab and continue into the right-facing dihedral with a couple bushes.

Route can be climbed at 5.6 by taking ramp to left and stepping right around the small roof after clipping the first 2 bolts.

Named for the rumbling thunder while bolting the route and slippery lichen on the FA.


One of the furthest left routes on the wall at this time (5/2014). Locate a 100' tall pillar left of a more obvious, larger overhanging pillar. Start just downhill of a pine tree where raspberry stems are coming out of a horizontal crack at waist height. Or for the 5.6 start, go up the ramp to the left.


About 8 bolts to cold shut/carabiner anchor.
