Thunderbolt Ridge is a remote ridgeline in Hogum Fork that is rated 5.4. Based on some pictures I have seen of it in winter, it looks to be a fun mixed winter climb. I would expect to either do it in one very long day with a very early start, or approach the day prior, and then climb the ridge and hike out the second day.
I am hoping to do this route while I am in the area in the beginning of January, depending on conditions and partner availability.
Is anyone interested?
Here are some photos:
"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
