Description 

This climb used to be a bit run-out. Also required pins. Ruckman guide says it has added bolts now.

Another early, hard and classic route.

Location 

Base of the Thumb, just west of Spring and Fall.

This is a more complex line than the others on this wall requiring some traversing, down climbing, hard slab moves, crack climbing. Unfortunately it hooks up higher on the wall with a very poor quality line - the Robbins route, making the climbing less appealing. I guess you can go left to lunch ledge though and skip the ending.
