NW Ridge of The Thumb 7-30-11 
Sunday, July 31, 2011, 01:25 PM - Weekend Fun
Kevin got me climbing in upper La Cueva Canyon again today. We did a fantastic line up The Thumb. Three 60' technical pitches at an average of 1 pitch/hour and then a long ridge simul-climb to the summit to beat the storms. Hit the trail at 12:30 just as the first crash of lightning struck.

6:40am in the parking lot.
8:00am roped up and ready to climb.
11:00am switched to simul-climbing.
12:00pm summit.
12:30pm hiking La Luz
1:00pm sleet and rain
2:00pm beers at Kevin's place.

4:00pm HHH event in the foothills near Central and Tramway with Kelly.
