The slightly overhanging north face of Rib Rock.

Description 

This is the first major east-west rib of rock north of Sharksfin. The majority of the trad and sport routes are on the north side. The descent for the trad routes follows the 3rd class summit ridge to the east to the ground.


Getting There 

The shortest approach is from the Fish Creek trailhead.
