Bomber handcrack in the Tom's Thumb hiking area.

V-easy. 20 feet.

Start on the Tom's Thumb Trail about .1 mi. Then take the Mesquite canyon trail left (SE) for .2mi. It will connect with the Feldspar trail. Turn left (E) and continue on until you see the climber access sign. Continue on the well marked trail towards the Girlie Man climbing area. You will see the hand crack just to the right of the trail, a few dozen yards from the actual climbing area. It is hard to miss.

There are some easy horizontal moves, into some bomber hand holds as it turns vertical to the top.

Bring a pad if you want. It has a flat dirt landing. Falling from the top wouldn't be pleasant. 

Enjoy the climb! Please use leave no trace principles when climbing here!
