Tom Thumb is a new trad route located just to the left of Broken Arrow. Approximately 55 feet long.
Start about 10 feet to the left of the beginning of Broken Arrow. Ascend to the large, downwardly pointing flake, move up and right, and then start up the crack. There are two cruxes in the crack – one just to the left of the third bolt of Broken Arrow and another about ten feet higher. Both cruxes feel somewhat awkward (this climb is trickier that it appears from the ground). Climb to anchor hooks and lower.
It is 10' left of Broken Arrow.
All trad, although the third bolt on Broken Arrow can be clipped with a 2’ runner. Small to medium cams and assorted small to medium stoppers. Two-bolt anchor with lowering hooks. Anchor shared with The Lone Ranger.

You can do this one as a sport climb by clipping the first 6 bolts on Broken Arrow and then running it out on easy terrain to the anchors.
