Host to an awesome climb by the same name, Thunderbolt and Lightfeet also is host to another couple of scattered lines. Identifiable by the large perfect zig zagged splitter that heads up the middle of a large headwall above some looser looking rock below.

Getting There 

Park in the second pullout on the right (south). The Thunderbolt and Lightfeet wall is up and left of this pullout above the Warm Up Wall. Use the trail that has been established just to the left of the pullout.
