Start at the top of the wave as for The Mitten and Middle Finger routes , Scramble the forth class slab way to the right and link onto the low angled slab below the Thumb. Up this to the foot of the Thumb and the crack on its left that forms the climb. P1)Awkward starting moves to enter the main crack then offwidth and chimney climbing to a thin crack on the right which leads to the top. 90'5.9-. Descent :- Rap from slings around the summit block.

Located on The Mitten Formation which is a 20 min walk north from the Univa canyon trail head .,or directly towards the formation from the main dirt road.
