Description 

Enjoyable finger crack that extends over a large bulge.

From the same start as Green Monster on the Green Monster Slab (see that route for approach information) you head directly up the right-facing dihedral.

Lieback the lower crack or stem way over to Green Monster crack.


Protection 

Small cams (Camalot .3 - 2). You will probably need about 7 pieces. The bolts for Pure Thoughts are about four feet to the right. Single bolt anchor at the top.

Chossy with lots of loose holds, this route redeems itself with fun moves at the crux above a bomber .5. Bring smallish nuts for the bottom part.
The single bolt is there for the rap, scramble around to the top and you'll find it about 6' to the right of the anchors for green monster.

I thought this was harder than it looked. It felt harder than Green Monster to me, that's for sure.

There are two big loose flakes on the route. One, on the right side of the dihedral, moves a couple inches when pulled on. It's a giant jug and it looks solid, so be careful.....it would almost certainly kill your belayer if it came off. The second is smaller and on the left, just after the first loose one. It's a nice hold, but it is hollow, so be gentle.
