3 recorded ascents, including 1 unsuccessful ascent.

Climber Style Ascent Date Suggested Grade
John Gill Solo | ground up 1961
First ascent.

A truly remarkable ascent for it's time. It was worked from the ground up, without the benefit of climbing shoes or bouldering mats.

John Sherman Lead | worked
Royal Robbins Lead | did not finish

I considered my greatest failure to be my efforts on the thimble. I could see that even if I worked on it forever I would never achieve it.
