This route is pretty good, but the descent is enough of a hassle to make it hardly worth doing. Find this route by walking through the tunnel on the north side of Sylvan Lake, and then take a left. The Wild Rib formation is up the hill a little ways. It is located up a tight squeeze gully between the first and second major formations uphill from the tunnel. Belay at the top of the obvious gully. Look for 3 bolts on a short arete.

Climb these and make an anchor. My memory is a little shaky on this, but I know that I had to downclimb to the last bolt, and then somehow downclimbed a different way (to the left?) from there to get off.


3 bolts, no anchors
