The ramp is narrow initially, but the climbing is always easy. From the south side to the west side, you are walking on a wide ledge. Crux is the final move to the top which is about 5.6.
Begin on the east side of the Thumb just right of the school slabs. Climb 15 feet to a ramp/ledge system that circles left halfway around the Thumb to the west side. You may want to break the ledge up into 2 pitches to reduce rope drag. From the wide ledge on the west with a two-bolt anchor, follow the right side of a gully to the top.
Rap 100 feet from the slings and rap rings on the west side of the top.
There are several anchors along the way that can be clipped. Otherwise medium gear up to #3 BD C4. Trad anchor or stance on top.
