This is the sunniest part of Thumb Butte and can sizzle shoes in the hot months but also provide for decent climbing during the cold. Most routes are low-angle and allow for very creative protection and nutcraft. A few bolted routes exist as well as some crack sections, but most climbs are face climbing with natural pro.
Ascend the paved tourist trail to the shoulder and then look for a small climbers trail around to the south side. With packs total approach time is maybe 20 or 30 minutes.
