Reptile Tears 5.10+

Reptile Tears climbs Reptile to the ledge then climbs the very steep headwall above. This is THE VERY BEST 100 foot pitch at Thunder Ridge!


Cams and wires. Two new bolts on on the upper section should help entice people to do the this route .

Due to input-pressure ( self - induced ), we have added two bolts to the upper section of this route to make it more friendly for the 5.10 leaders out there. This route is indeed THE best 100 ft. at Thunder. If you only do one route at the Ridge this is the most highly praised.

This route is fun x 1000. Steep, positive, and gymnastic moves. This place is awesome. Many thanks to the area developers.
