BETA PHOTO: Topo of "Thriller".

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This has a gymnastic start (consider using 2 locking carabiners on the first bolt!), followed by moderate ground, with a very thin, thrilling crux to a horizontal crack. Continue to the anchor straight above.

Location 

Start from the top of the large, pointed boulder at the right base of Old Folks Wall.

Protection 

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Advise taking a #1 Camalot for the moves above the 5th bolt.

Again, here's another route ripe for opinions on the rating. Please add your consensus rating. Since I helped put this route up, it would hopefully correct my perception of difficulty ratings.
