<< Kirkus's Route < The Rib | North Arete > None >>
A good route, and when combined with an ascent of Kirkus's Route gives a varied and often solitary mountain day-out. The route is loosely based on the broken central rib of rock
1) 28m. Climb blocky ground to gain a crack. Follow this and move left to gain the rib. Climb the rib, various belays possible
2) 20m. Follow the broken rib until a ledge is reached below the final steep wall
3) 4a, 32m. Climb the rib to gain a leftward traverse on a narrow ledge. From here climb the difficult groove above and exit leftwards.
