A very cool, long pitch starting with arĂȘte moves past 4 bolts and then ventures onto the face with interesting traversing sections past many bolts and a 1.5" cam placement in a horizontal. Ends at a two bolt anchor. Rappel EXACTLY 30 meters to a ledge.


Two fins right of Sparerib and on a south face


18 bolts (bring runners for sure) and one 1.5" cam, 60M rope

One of the bolts about 2/3 of the way is missing a hanger. Jun 25, 2017

Super duper freakin' awesome climb. One of the better faces in the canyon and a total adventure from start to finish, it throws everything at you. The short and stout crux may be pretty hard for the grade... Jul 18, 2015

Bolt has been replaced. Jul 18, 2015
A big heads up as of today...the 4th bolt (3/8") is missing hanger AND nut. I strung a Stopper on the threaded stud. Don't fall! Also, the 5th bolt looked funky and loose but probably only needs to be tightened. Aug 8, 2013
