This starts just right of Spontaneous Combustion, and like the others on this wall, it starts out bouldery (the thunder) and eases up for a while until the technical crux up high (the lightning).

It is just right of Spontaneous Combustion.

To fill in some blanks for the route description copied almost straight out of the guidebook: Start out with thin, technical climbing to get situated under the bulge to a short, bouldery section (not as hard as the thin section). Gain easier ground with several spots to rest, and then head to a short, shallow, right-facing corner. After the corner, the real business begins. If you follow the bolt line which I believe is the intended crux, it's hard .12c climbing and involves high feet and using a smooth, crescent-shaped undercling. What it looks like people are doing is traversing way right under the bulge, reaching to a good pocket and then moving back left to clip the next bolt. If done this way, I would give the route .12b, but try not to blow the sequence because you're looking at a bad swing into the right-facing corner. After the crux, enjoy fun climbing to the anchor.
