Description 

If you're at the point in your early climbing career where routes like Preparation H and Strung Out On Crack are becoming cakewalks, its time to get your butt whipped by Tinkerbell's naughty kid sister. If you've never had your cherry popped at the 5.9 level, I would highly recommend stick clipping the first two bolts, because Thumbelina likes it rough, and has kicked off her fair share of 5.10 climbers. Trust me, decking out in this area is no trip to the magic kingdom. After a steep start with shallow pockets, the adventure gets pretty exciting with good movement up a sexy arete. Thumbelina is sure to please and satisfy those looking for a longer climb with a fair amount of challenge to it.


Location 

Thumbelina is in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook and is located just to the left of Strung Out on Crack.


Protection 

6 bolts and closed shut anchors.
