Description 

This climb provides an "easier" way to get to the summit of the Thumb. That being said, the climbing is pretty uninteresting. I had to clean out a lot of the protection spots.... I don't think this route gets done very often.

Climb up dirty corners between ledges and weave your way to the top.

Location 

The climb is on the climbers' right on the North side of the Thumb. Rappel from the summit to descend.

Protection 

Standard rack. Bolted anchor on top.
