Nice Photo!

Punch in the Nose, the earlier route, typically went left and closer to King Me for the third pitch and then the same as King Me for roughly half of the last pitch and finished right on the old standard finish. The standard finish, above the sotol, goes up a steep corner and then traverses right to easier ground and off. Jun 13, 2015

The Green Thumb route in the above photo extends the Green Thumb single-pitch description (May 2015) by several more pitches.

Alternatively, a different extension was recently added to the Green Thumb page. It corresponds to Route 'B' in this . This alternate extension is an aesthetically direct line to the summit on mostly good rock. May 18, 2015

This photo shows Pawn's Promotion heading far right beneath a long roof after the Pitch-3 belay of Cross-trainer. On the other hand, the Pitch-2 description of Pawn's Promotion indicates "staying with the same vertical crack" above the Pitch-3 belay of Cross-trainer.

We went far right which worked fine. Another party went straight up which reportedly worked fine as well. May 18, 2015
