Very cool aid climb to the top of "The Thumb". This is a clean aid climb, NO pitons or hammers please.

3 out of 5 stars The Thumb!!!

Slightly overhanging and all the fixed gear is ready to go at anytime. There is a #0 TCU stuck near the top that didn't want to come loose. Half of the hangers for the bolt ladder are cracked most of the way through. Someone placed a decent looking head just before the crack about 3/4 the way up that makes the move easier than trying the hook move on the blown out hole on the face. Overall I can say I enjoyed it, now that I am back on solid ground.

Really photogenic climb. The bolt ladder and fixed gear are in bad shape but add to the "adventure" of the climb. Not to many people get to the top of the Thumb simply because the only other way up is a 5.12+ free climb :)
