Description

An easy face climb, passing many horizontals.

Approach: Use the access trail that heads up just where there Stairmaster reaches the Carriage Trail, a 4-minute walk from the Uberfall. At the cliff, walk left and locate Arch, a prominent rock arch above the East Trapps Connector Trail. Ribs starts at the prominent, hanging arete well below the right side of the arch.

P1: Gain the large arete from the side, then traverse over to the middle of the face on the right. Climb nearly a straight line up to the GT ledge, with one or two overhang moves just before the finish. 5.5, 130'. You can also stop at the bolted rap station at 80'; this is a common toproping spot for beginners and guided groups.

Descent: There are three bolted rap stations that serve this and nearby routes.

Protection

Cams of all sizes in horizontals. Pass one bong and rap chains midway up.
