The Thumb is a digit extended skyward by the mountain range in an ominous gesture of defiance. The enraged appearance of the peak suggests that it may not be climbed, but we shall seek out a class 3 route. Beginning at the ruins of Glacier Lodge (7796) we will pack primarily on trail to our two-night campsite at Upper Brainard Lake (10800). We will climb over class 3 Southfork Pass (12560), where ice axe and crampons may be necessary. From the pass, the guidebook says the summit route goes class 2, but be prepared for something tougher.

Saturday we'll hike from Mosquito Flat to a camp at Dade Lake. Sunday we'll climb the northeast buttress of Bear Creek Spire and descend the Ulrichs Route and if time allows climb Mt Dade (class 2) before returning to camp and hiking out. A rope will be carried since some class 4 climbing should be encountered near the summit. To shorten Sunday, we could do Dade on Saturday via the class 2 Hourglass route after setting up camp.
