Follow the East Face approach until the trail reaches the rock slabs of the upper East Face. A grassy ledge traverse to the right will bring you around the corner of the NE Ridge at the elevation of the base of the Crooked Thumb's North Ridge. Cross over to the base of the North Ridge and surmount a block called the Grandstand. Start climbing just right of the ridge in a right-facing corner system that is easy to follow. 6-8 pitches up the ridge lead to a dome-like feature intersecting with the Direct East Ridge route. Follow this genderme over and down to a fixed rappel crossing a small divide. Moderate climbing leads past the Emerson Chimney and to the summit.
Descend the East Face route.
