Description 

Begin up a low-angled face to the left of a big dirty crack. Pull through the bulge to a big briefcase-sized block that may be loose (don't know for sure, didn't yard on it), stand up on top, get comfy in the dirt and pine needles, clip the single anchor bolt and you're game. This one could be Chocolate Glove's dirty stepsister.

Quoting J. Marc Beverly in Jemez Rock, "Some thrasher routes exist across and upstream 20 feet from the 45° Boulder; not recommended," hence the name Thrasher Route. If anybody has information on the route-setter/FA and route name, please post to comments.

Protection 

3 bolts to a 1-bolt lowering anchor equipped with a quick-link.
