Climb Sphincter Boy Near Tom's Thumb

Toms Thumb Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Joseph Gulizia

Short, but excellent finger crack in the Girlie Man climbing area.

5.9 trad route. About 60ft. Can be set up as a Top Rope.

To get there you will start on the Tom's Thumb Trail for 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. Once you get to the base of the climbing area, you will see a large slab with a finger crack running up the right side of it. This is where you will need to scramble up to.

You will need a single set of cams, or stoppers up to .75in. There are nice finger holds all the way up to the two bolt anchor at the top. 

Enjoy the climb! Please remember to use the leave no trace principles while climbing here! 

Bring plenty of water, as there is nowhere to fill up your water bottles near by.
