55m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great route that feels tough for the grade.
1) 15m. Crackstone Rib P1.
2) 4c, 20m. Move back right into the steeper continuation crack. Climb this direct to a belay at the junction with the final pitch of Lion.
3) 4a, 15m. The large flakes, as for P4 of Lion. © Rockfax

Lovely climbing with excellent gear and big holds. Felt it might have been more fun as one long 50m pitch (the guide says it would total 52m but I felt that in reality it would've been a bit less). Thought it was better than Crackstone Rib.

Staying at Ynys, everyday it starts raining at 10am so decided to do Crackstone Rib before breakfast. This changed to a go at Ribstone. It took 2 hours, I was absolutely starving, everyone at Ynys sat outside having breakfast watching us. all I had was one mint in my pocket.
