Some thoughtful slab climbing leads to amazing laybacking up steep face. You'll know the crux when you get there. Exit the layback using some interesting holds and push for the chains.
This is a great climb.


On the Left of the two cliffs go all the way down and around to the left. "Thunderbolts" is the last bolted route you will see.


Bolts to cahin anchors.

Fun climb. The layback section is fun and the crux is right after layback. You don't have to do the layback, my partner just went face up and it didn't look any harder.
