Climb up to a chimney that is about 50 feet left of the Mosaic Wall. At the top of the chimney head up and right to another chimney. Another pitch leads to a ledge. Move back left past some really really old bolts below a roof and continue up a corner.

Thin Man is to the right of Penny Arcade. As I remember, the two route kiss at one point. I can not remember which pitch it is though. Too long ago. In conversations with Merril they did not finish it, probably wanted to but we snuck past them. The interesting part is that up high by the penny we found an old pin the had the initals IOD or perhaps JOD. I often wondered if the pin belonged to Jim Dockery.

But yeah lots of rock but very thin seams. Sep 1, 2007
Hi Allen,
Where is Thin Man in relation to Hounds Tooth and some of these other routes you have mentioned on Flying Buttress? We placed a number of pins on Thin Man (in the book). I know Penny Arczade was just to the right at the start and goes to the distinctive "Penny". Merril once told me that they went back and finished it? No? Definitely alot of rock up there on FB.
