Sharp crimps on 'Prostrate to the Higher Mind' ph...

Description 

This area is situated on the north west of the Druid Stones. The crown jewel of the area is the Thunder Wall Boulder with its magnificent north face that contains numerous crimping test pieces. There are smaller less impressive boulders also in this area, but all contain problems worth doing.

Kredulf and Denton's Diversion should be on anyone's tick list.

Getting There 

Walk north keeping to the west of the area and you will come to this impressive orange wall.

Denton's Remorse V10 7C+  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Thunder Wall Boulder
Sit start on friendly underclings down and left. Slide on in there and pull off the ground with difficulty. Get a tricky kneebar and make a move out right to a decent hold. From here make a hard move left hand to a grainy undercling. Pull hard and make a hard low percent move to the good slot.
