Spare Rib, 5.8

1st-2nd Pitches- 150’- 5.8/ The first 80’ is definitely the best climbing of the route. A textbook vertical 5.8 crack takes you straight up the middle of the pillar to a small belay ledge. The crux is overcoming a small bulge right before the belay. Clip the station with a double length runner and climb out left following a thin crack past a bolt and then face climbing past several other bolts to a semi hanging belay. This ground is quite featured and easy for the grade, but steep. (photos)
