Spare Rib* 4c
15m.

Rockfax Description
A steep start is a challenge, though there are good holds round right. Keep left until a move right gains the shared lower-off. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The left side of the rib has a steep start then jugs galore. The start might be worth 5.

Whether it was a 4+ or 5 would depend a lot on how much upper body strength you have. Crux can be got round with a heel-hook and side-pull. Really great route.

Hard start. Tried to get Kat up the start, then tried it myself. Easy after 1/3 height.
