Climbing the last few moves on the FA of The Rubst...
The Rubster takes you to the highest point of the rocks that form this section, and provides fine exposed face climbing on the second pitch.
1. 5.10b Climb the arete, either by laybacking the edge or using small crimps on the left side. At the top of the arete move up the slab and climb the short face and slab up to the anchors.
2. 5.10a Climb up the slabby face to the obvious break just below the midway point. From here continue up the steeper head wall to a precarious couple of last moves up to the spectacular summit.
Located to the right of Fat Bastard.
Walk around the large boulder on the right of the area. Scramble up some rounded boulders to get to the base of the climb.
1. 5 bolts, double ring anchors
2. 6 bolts, ring and bolt anchor

It is possible to climb both pitches in one long pitch, but you will need to extend the first bolt of the second pitch, and then rap the pitches individually, as there will be too much rope drag to be lowered.
