Description

Prime Rib is the crack/dihedral system immediately left of Captain Fist on The Leftovers.

Climb the slab just right of the dead tree leaning on in (you can sling the tree for pro). Pull right into the dihedral, and climb it for about 50 feet. Exit the dihedral before it ends and swing around onto the face to the left (can get a #3 Camalot here). If the move is hard, you're probably too high. Climb cracks on the face to the belay ledge - the last 40 feet is a runout with no pro.

As of Feb. 2002, the rap anchors had been removed - descend over the top and around to the right - a crappy scramble that holds snow longer than the rest of Turkey.

Protection

A standard rack should suffice.
