Nancy's Thumb

Description 

Nancy's Thumb is the large tower protruding from the north end of North Fin.


Getting There 

Driving up the Catalina Highway, park at Windy Point (mp 14.3). Cross the road, and hike out the ridge just behind the restrooms.

As you near the end of the ridge (couple hundred yards), find a trail that drops sharply down the right side along a small cliff. It may take some looking to find the right spot, but once you do, it will be obvious.

Continuing down this trail, you will approach Nancy's Thumb, a large pinnacle with an obvious crack on the north side. Allow five minutes for the approach.

Tricky start could result in a bad fall. Probably smart to throw in one or two pieces before leaving the ground. You'll get a couple of nice hand jams before the route's over....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

CONDITION REPORT 

Some dickhead put graffiti near Nacy's Thumb. I think there are plenty of brick walls in Tucson for such a thing, but they probabky will never read this....
