A spectacular, steep route on the north face of the Thumb following the striking right facing dihedral system. The climb is 3 long pitches, but many people just climb to the top of the 2nd pitch and rap. P1) Long pitch capped by a slot/roof (5.9). P2) Another long, quality pitch up the corner. A tricky traverse right leads to a devious lieback manuever (5.9). Continue up and left to a bolted anchor below a lichen-striped wall. P3) Easy to the top.
