The bold, bulging rib between the crack systems is a stern test. The grade assumes that several pegs are in place. Climb the scoop and face, trending left to the overhang. Pull right over this to reach a crack, and follow this steeply to a stance in the bay above. Finish as for Southern Rib.
FA. John Codling, Dave Jones 1980. Originally done in two pitches.
