This area was developed back in the day.
Many climbs have "tricky pro" read this as run-out or just lots of marginal gear, lots of "two lobers"

Ben starting Dog Leg at Thumbe Butte
Aug 22, 2012
Who knows the best way to approach the different areas of the butte? In attempt to reach the north face the other day, we found ourselves bushwacking and scrambling quite a bit. It was not fun. We approached using the climber's trail from the south and wrapped around the northeast face, but once we got to the north side it seemed like it might be easier to come up using the paved trail. True? Are there climber's trails from the paved trail? If anyone would be willing to enlighten me on the best ways to approach the different areas at the butte I would much appreciate it... and it would probably cut down on hiking off trail so much.
