BETA PHOTO: Thunder Road and Corn on the Cob. Thunder Road is...
The west face of Cob Rock is a steep gold and brown wall. Thunder Road fires up the center of this beautiful wall. Climb up to a large crack/corner on the left side of the west face. Easy fifth class. Belay here with gear. Travese right and clip the first bolt. Crank up and clip the second bolt, make a series of weird lay-a-ways and then crank on good holds to a difficult mantle. Steep climbing veers right and then straight up on good holds to the anchor. Excellent route on very good rock.
Six clips plus a red and green Camalot will get you to the anchor.
Marga on the difficult moves near the second bolt.
