Description:

A tough start on bouldery slab with no pro leads to a nice crack which is somewhat flaring. The crack is actally a rounded water groove. *note* If you plan to lead this route, be a strong 5.9 climber. Can be easily toproped after climbing Left Up. Added: Bomber blue TCU in an eyebrow up and right of the start, before the business, stiff for the grade.

4 out of 5 stars Thunder Crack

This was our last climb of the day. I clipped the top-rope through a sling on the pine above this route, with the top-rope set up on the Left Up belay bolts. As with most of the climbs on this section, the crux is at the very beginning, and the rest of the climb rolls back to much easier grade. Still a great start and some good layback practice and fun easy moves on the upper section. Protection looks very good for trad lead.

3 out of 5 stars Took three tries...

to summon the courage to get to the first gear, but after I was above it, it was all fun and games.

4 out of 5 stars Difficult Start, but fun route.

I haven't led this, but I can see how it could be difficult, very little protection.
