The start of the rib lies between Bear Creek Spire and the Southern Dinosaur Egg. The bottom of the rib may be identified by a steep 30 foot high face at the bottom. Start right of this face and head up the rib.
About half way up, you will be stopped by a 20' vertical step in the ridge. One can climb straight up the crest at exposed 5.3 (watch for loose rock). A cowardly variation here climbs a fir tree right of the crest and is not recommended. After this you will soon reach on a small, keyhole shaped false summit. This is bypassed by downclimbing a bit and doing a short traverse on the east side. After this you will climb right over a small arch, although this is hard to see when you are going over it. Continue up to the saddle west of Dinosaur Rock.
