Pitch 1 5.8 80'- Follow a left angling crack/ramp to a corner where the crack starts to head straight up. Set up a gear belay here. (Lots of gear options for anchor but I recommend saving finger size stuff .4-.75)

Pitch 2 5.10a 110'- Ahhh the good stuff. Head straight up to a short OW section to a roof. Go left out of the roof and follow a crack to the summit.

Rap: There is a two bolt anchor on top. Rap 95' (single 60m) down to the east saddle and hike back around the spire to packs.


North/East Face of Devil's Thumb
Park at Mystic Trailhead. Follow mystic 5-10 minutes and take a right on Hog Wash trail. Follow hog wash a couple minutes until you are looking up at Devils Thumb. Pick a line up to the thumb through washes and ridges. 20-30min approach.


Double rack from .4-#4bd (#5 camelot optional) and nuts
