Currently the hardest route in Comales Canyon. Steep line with continuous hard moves to a rest midway then easier climbing above. Climbs steep orange face behind big tree to black arete above.


This route is located on independent formation "Tim's Thumb" a small cliff with pointy summit partially visible from and left of Fire Wall about 30 meters. Walk Left from Fire Wall past first wall with roof routes.
