DescriptionAn exposed, blunt rib with good climbing on sound rock, only lacking gear. Start from the ledge at the top of the rightwards-trending quartz ramp, the rib should be to your left.
Climb the corner to the right of the rib for about 20 feet to an overlap, stick some protection in then traverse left under the overlap to gain the rib itself. This move is quite tricky but well protected. From here move easily up the rib, with no gear until a ledge with a large block of quartz ("the quartz babe"). A few metres behind this is a good belay on a large spike.
The Sword is a good start to "Route 2" up to the Great Terrace.
