Wedge Rib* VS 5a
[Chilly Ribs, 3 kb]14m. The axe-edge rib in the gully has a delicate layback start (almost worth a star) - avoid the crack on the left at the grade - leading to easier climbing up the broad rib above. © ROCKFAX

nearly fell of at the bottom, as bold and requires to lay back off the arete. The top was alright as i already have done The Wedge that finishes up the same way.

used the block on the right as a handhold, no idea if this is on or not, but without it the move seems harder than 5a.
