Has anyone ever heard of a technical route on the north aspect of the Thimble (a rock turret just outside of Ranchita CA).  Aside from the long cross-country approach, the rock quality is great and it seems that someone at some point would have put a route up.  I have gone up via the third-class route and always wondered if some desert rat got up there back in the day.  Also, there is an ancient fixed rope on Chief rock but I don't see any evidence of anyone climbing it.
