Slightly awkward start up a slab with a crack running up the middle of the Spare Rib formation (left of left rib). First pro goes between large boulder to left and slab below crack. Follow crack up and left to bypass steep wall, instead passing a single bolt on the arête and up to the anchor ledge.


Slab left of left rib. Start low and left against a large Boulder in the middle of the formation. Rap anchors at the top in a small sheltered ledge near the top of the formation-- before the crumbling boulders on top. Good rock quality to the top!

Note: go left near top and follow easier terrain above horizontal. Direct finish is much harder that 5.5. Bolt is above the horizontal on left arête.


Medium gear past a bolt to rap anchor with ring.
