SDS for Thunder Hole

Description 

Basically a one-move wonder into a nice V2. SDS on tiny crimps, the three starting crimps to choose from are all in the same lowest horizontal line (the center crimp is a 1/4 pad positive crimp, left is a tiny finger slot or OK sidepull, third is a small edge around the corner to the right). Feet on a large left facing crescent shaped dish, or other smears. Make a tough move or two to a good horizontal then climb the blunt arete on rad iron bands using edges, dishes and pinches to a quality mantle. Good movement, still a bit mossy up high. Needs to be climbed to stay clean!

Skipping the sit start is a fun V2ish warm-up. Thx to Mr. Metzman for scrubbing this line for us. Cascadia needs more warm-ups!


Location 

Backside of the Cascadia boulder above the "backwater"

Protection 

several pads would be good. The problem is low, but the mossy rocks below would be bad to fall on with poor coverage.
