Thumb Up My Arse

This is just to the right of Thumbs Up.
This is the second line of black bolts you spy to the right of where the trail from The Needle meets The Thumb. You start with a few gear placements (small cams) and continue through a bolted line of sustained 5.10 climbing.
QDs and a few small cams.

Rock quality on this one is a bit questionable.

I suggested the 5.10 grade to Nathan, but that might be redpoint vs. an onsight grade of 10+?
There's an old stuck orange cam which marks the hanging dihedral that has gear below and in it before you reach the first bolt- pretty much fall-line. This can also be the start for Pin Job vs. the harder crack start 2m to the left.
Anchor is exactly 29m on this one and can also be accessed easily by climbing past the Thumbs Up route anchor. This new anchor replaces the funky Pin Job anchor that was mostly removed.
Should clean-up with a few more ascents. There is a large hold near the 2nd bolt that moves but seems to be key-locked in...but can be a bit exciting the first time you grab it!
