A multi-pitch adventure that links 3-pitches to the top of Koala Rock, this is a must do climb in the area and worth the hike up to the area.
Pitch 1:There are two ways to reach the first set of anchors. For a fully bolted adventure, climb Suck My Kiss to the first set of anchors. We still haven't made our way up the traditional start to Thin Air, but it looks like a finger crack up to and over a bulge
Pitch 2: Work your way off the anchor block up and over a thin start to a slabbier face with small holds and feet until you gain another ledge with a set of anchors
Pitch 3: Again, the hardest climbing comes straight off the anchors on the third pitch by having to crank over a bulge with air beneath you. It's possible to clip the first bolt without making any real move off the ground, which adds some comfort. Pull over the bulge and work your way up to a final slabby headwall with nice exposure and incuts to sink into until you reach the top of Koala Rock.
Descent: Walk around to the back side and make a single rappel to the ground

Mad Rock decided to give the Flash 2.0 an upgrade with the release of the Flash 2018 model. Having been a fan of the Flash 2.0 for years as a solid gym shoe, it was hard to believe that the shoe could get much better while staying at the same price point, but Mad Rock did it.
