This excellent route is found at the bottom of the West Ridge overlooking Boulder Creek. It's located on the right side of the large amphitheater which includes such routes as: Allosaur, Blues Power and Wing Shot to name a few. From Allosaur, walk right and scramble up and over then down into a "trough" to reach the start. It's best to clip the first bolt while standing on the ledge, then move down a few feet to actually start the climb. Move up past the first three bolts on funky, somewhat committing moves, then continue up on steeper rock to a fifth bolt. Execute the overhead bulge and straight up to a well deserved stance on the near vertical face. After a nice shake out, climb up on delicate moves requiring balance and good footwork. Resist grabbing the anchor! Keep in mind while you're climbing this that prior to Sept 2006 the bottom three bolts were not there! Rossiter lists this route as Thunder Constuction, an abandoned project.

Descent Options:

Lower off two bolt anchor.
