Angus on lead.

No Pressure is a new line that climbs up beautiful features in a lonely, white face with black streaks on either side. Starts juggy, and gets thinner and thinner until you grab a muffin to clip the anchors.

This was my first route that I've put up at Thunder. Bolted it on lead from free stances, but had previously top roped the route a week prior to the lead to find bolt placements. With that said, I want to thank Kirsten for her patience, and support of my love for Thunder. Also Kevin and Glen for being so supportive of new climbers at the Ridge.



This route is located in the waffle section of the Quarry Wall in between Pulp Friction and Event Horizon


8 bolts + 2 bolt anchor, all drilled on lead.

Thanks for the work, Dave & Kirsten! The bolts are perfectly placed and the climbing is superb. This is a challenging face climb, it's all about the feet on this one.

STRONG F'ING WORK, DUDE. I climbed this thing yesterday and felt pretty awesome about clipping those superbly placed bolts, especially up high where the rock suddenly gets a bit more toilet-bowl smooth. I doubt there are many people out there who would have the patience to get that thing outfitted on the sharp end. Well done!

Very thoughtful bolt placements. I wish every route were bolted this well. Engaging slab climbing. The friction is unbelievably good.
