Work your way up to a bolt protecting a devious, palm-down, mantlish move in a V-slot. Right hand palms down, right foot matches near the right hand, left hand is on a high crimp, and then right hand reaches out to a sloping crimp/sidepull. Delicately rock over and head up past bolts though steep bulges to a final small roof before a two-bolt anchor. Lots of balance and technique are required. Fun climb.


This ascends the Northwest corner of The Thumb, uphill and to the right of North Overhangs and the Zig Arete area.


Bolts. Anchors at the top.

Tough for the grade? Didn't read the description before trying it, so will need to try the funky mantle instead at the start which was the shut down move for me..

Bolting and cleaning could use improvement, but it's not bad and with clean-up (and crux beta) a nice addition to The Thumb. Anchor could be lower or right and last bolt finish is a bit too contrived when you can step a meter right into an easy finish.

Upper crux was pretty fun.

My partner broke a key hold on this in 2011, which probably makes the initial crux quite a bit harder.
