Right of Baby Back and Left of the gully that separates the Left Rib of Sven 3 from the Spare Rib section. Start on steep slab just left of the right arete--from top of boulder past two shallow horizontal cracks and left of a large free standing boulder to a steep wall with two separate crack sections, one low and left--and the other high and right.


Spare Rib is the furthest left section of granite making up the left wall of the gully to the left of the left rib of Sven 3. Start low and left near the middle of the rib where a vertical crack system can be seen from below.


Gear is small to medium (.4 to 2 inches).
