SE Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the SE Ridge from the bottom trailhead. We found that staying left after the lone tree made more sense. There are a few moves on the left side ramp that are very exposed, but otherwise it is not so bad. Not sure why the route description says to stay right, since the right side is also very exposed and looks like it's 5th class. Whenever we had a choice, staying left always seemed better in my opinion. Great views from the top!

Just As Stated  Sucess!

Followed Dave's instruction and took the Southwest Ridge. Class 3 scramble to summit. A very quick trip from the crest.

This is probably the best view of the Sandias I have seen to far. It sits high enough to view the whole mountain range, bit it sits back enough to get a full 170 degree (or so) view of every major peak. Even Hail Peak can be seen well from the Thumb.

Northwest Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed the Thumb via NW Ridge route. Led all technical pitches. Went off-route on a couple of pitches staying close to the ridge crest. After 5 roped pitches, scrambled to the Northern and Main (South) summits. Descended SE Ridge. Fun route, stellar views.

long day   Sucess!

Climbed it yesterday via Northwest Ridge, a long day. We started late, and reached the top with moon above us. Great day!

SE Ridge Solo  Sucess!

Cool scramble, not too exposed if you stay on route, otherwise very scary. Still lots of snow from the last storm but melting fast.
