[Mike Birkby on Demon Rib Black Rocks, 2 kb]18m. The elegant, bulging and bold rib is reachy (and the landing is poor) until the flakes are reached (Friend 1). Continue up the easier upper arete. An astounding ascent for the day although there was a grassy base then and a shoulder to stand on was allowed as a point of aid. © ROCKFAX

Very reachy (for my stunted frame) but relatively straight-forward after the intial move. Very enjoyable!
