A long, slightly wandering route on good stone down low to not exactly great stone up high.
Head up the slender, rounded black rib using good holds to the third bolt. The slabby crux comes at you around the forth bolt. Beyond that, the climbing eases off and moves right to another faint rib. Continue up that rib on somewhat dubious looking rock to the anchor.
The obvious black rib about 40 feet left of Turbo Road
. Belayer will be standing in the trail that goes along the base of the route.
This route is not in the older Sharp End (Knapp) book
but is listed in the new D'Antonio book
as "New Route". We had been calling it "Black Rib" so I presumptuously added that name as an alias for the route here.
FA information is appreciated as is information regarding a better name.
~10 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

This is a fun route up the black rib. I gave it 4 stars for the movement and the fact that it could easily be a classic once some of the scaly rock exfoliates. The rock to the right of the bolt line is flaky and should be regarded as fried.
