Far and away the best single route in the McDowells- plus it goes to the top of a tower. Twin 10+/11- cruxes, one low and one high plus quality climbing on this long pitch, or obvious two pitch split. A must do (before access denied?).
North face of Tom Thumb, about 25' right of Sucubus is an obvious crack system leading to summit.

I did this climb not to long ago. It has a terrible amount of pink bird shit in the middle of the climb. Not as classic as I had hoped!

Aside from the bird shit this route is great. I would give it 3 starts but had to give it 4 because the last guy that commented gave it a bomb.

Amazing. Deep Freeze has a little of everything from straight on jams to a mini dihedral for the first crux area. Takes doubles from .3 to #3 c4 camalots, having a #4 doesn't hurt either.
