I don't think I ever mentioned this at any other point, but Janelle made the first female ascent of the Thumb on this trip (though not on this attempt, as we were turned back by obviously deteriorating weather). As far as I know, she's still the only female to have summitted the Thumb.

Janelle pops out of the chimney and back on to the East Ridge after a short rappel, traverse, & climb to get around the large, snow-covered gendarme visible behind.
