Description 

Starts in the same shallow corner as Thumb One but continues strait up following bolts which eventually lead to a steep lieback up a rib of dikes. The route has a distinct crux pulling on some dikes which is harder moves than found on Thumb One, but it is nowhere near as sustained.

I liked this route, but it felt obviously harder than Thumb One through the crux. I'd hesitate to not call it 5.10 for a move or two. Felt a little bit contrived too, but overall a fun route.
