Same start as Ribcage problem. Climb out right through the roof to slopey holds and top out on the other side of arete.


The Corridors Area, Ribcage Boulder

This thing is sick! Start low on some crescent shaped crimps and advance to the roof using the namesake feature. Bust out right to the crimp rail and move into the slopey runnel. Aug 24, 2012

I felt like I wrestled a refrigerator by the time I was done! There must be better beta for the final mantle... Feb 11, 2013

This is a must do problem if you are at LRC for only one day. It has awesome moves for everyone of every size. You'll all do it differently, but it will be a good time regardless! Ultra classic. The upper section will be hard if it's hot and humid, though, be forewarned! Nov 14, 2013

Sit start low and compress both sides instead of starting on the left...it might not change the grade but I think it's an amazing way to do the problem! Knee bar is helpful! Sep 5, 2016

I use the "I'm short" excuse a lot, but this climb is amazing for short and tall folk alike! I found it's equally doable using the blunt arete to mantle as it is to use the chalked portions. It was rather hot when I climbed and I didn't at all feel like it made the climb harder. AN absolute-must do moderate for anybody who visits LRC!

Also about the start, some people start the same as Ribcage, some start on the namesake "Sternum" hold with matched undercligs/pinches.... I tried both ways and it didn't seem to particularly matter which way you started in terms of difficulty; I thought starting via Ribcage made the beginning marginally easier.... V5 either way!
