Description

A free-standing spire to the left of the other rocks. A true technical summit, a single rope rappel off of the west-northwest face is required to descend. The Thumb has both sport and trad routes, with some excellent narrow and wide crack climbs. Most of the aspects have climbs so you can case shade or sun depending on the temp.

Getting There

As the road reaches the furthest north, and highest elevation before descending to the main turn off and haystack rock, there is a two track heading up hill. Park here and hike into the drainage to the west. Ascend up the drainage for about 10-15 minutes until the rock is reached.
