If you like crimpy, hard-to-protect face climbing, this excellent moderate will fill the bill. A strategically-placed bolt makes the necessary runout a little less intimidating.
Climb the steep face using the namesake "thin pockets" to a bolt midway up; if you want to get in some protection before the bolt, move up and right to a flake then back left to the bolt. Continue up to an overhang where you can finally place some pro, then move left to a crack in the overhang and follow it to the top.
The rightmost of several nice climbs on a wide flat wall between Beginner's Route and Broken Arrow; starts just right of Ghost Dancers. Rap from fixed anchors.
Mainly small gear (nuts and tiny cams). Ring anchors at the top.

Much easier and better protected than it looks.
