Fun climb, started up Blackerby Ridge Trail over Cairn Peak to Camp 17. From here we crossed Lemon Creek Glacier and traversed onto the ridge near Scorpion Peak and continued along the ridge to the base of Split Thumb gaining the SE ridge via a class 3-4 scree loose rock slope. The ridge itself is fun with one 80 foot pitch of 5.4 and a few class 3-4 moves just before the summit.
