BETA PHOTO: First Impressions as seen from the new Tom Thumb t...
Short climb, but one of my favorites at the crag. Start with 40 feet of straight-forward, and awkward off-width climbing in the 5.8-9 range. Either exit straight up through a chimney, or traverse out left on a steep horizontal 5.10 hand and finger crack.
Best approached after climbing another route to top. Scramble off back and proceed a short ways back down the old approach trail to Toms Thumb. Don't get too low, and eventually scramble up to the route through a few sticker bushes.
Bring a couple 4 - 4.5 Camalot size pieces (old sizes), and a few finger to hand size pieces for the traverse. Gear belay.
