This is another line on the west face of The Thimble. It draws the eye somewhat. The finish out right is sort of Gunks-like or gunky. It may not be worth the effort unless you like to explore.

Move up the loose-ish chimney, gain the ledge. Pull out right on a bulge. Note there is a loose bucket hold near the top just right of the crack. One can also scamper left at the ledge on easier terrain to the top.

It's on the lean side of a star.


This emerges from the slot between The Thimble and The Thumb.


The protection is perhaps lean for a 5.5. What can work are #4 & 0.75 Camalots and yellow & green Aliens. The 2 bolt anchor is probably 25-30 feet from the edge. You can use a #1 Camalot on top, too.
