Description 

A route squeezed next to the multi-pitch Ribs, this route is only one pitch long. You can do a contrived second pitch to reach Arch / Wrist, but you'll only get two pieces of pro - definitely X. As it stands, Ribless is a good route to set up on TR. Be warned, thought - Ribless and Ribs are in a rappelling superhighway. Wear a helmet at all times.


Location 

Climb the face and arete to the left of Ribs, staying withing 2-3 feet of the arete at all times. Can use an anchor off Ribs with a directional to TR Ribless. Rappel down Ribs.


Protection 

G-PG rated, depending on what gear you have. Tricams are useful.

This was better than I expected. Good rock, a few interesting moves. The arete is far enough to the left of the rap line that you can lead it without concern that a rope will fall on your head. Also I found two good cracks at the top of the pitch for a gear anchor directly above the climb and out of the rap line.

This is a surprisingly fun short climb to do if you are in the area. I thought the gear got a little tricky about halfway up where there are two shallow, pebbly pockets.
