The Glaciated Rib** D
50m. An excellent pitch lying some 50m up the descent gully, just above where the descent route climbs down the slabs. Start at the foot of the cleanest rib. There is a holly growing from a crack on the right at 10m. Probably only moderate but graded for the sparse protection lower down.

Climb the delightful slab passing between the holly and the large flake crack on the left. continue up the thin crack-line in the rib, then in the same line to the top. Descend over and round to the left or cross right and use the normal descent path.

First half well led by Jon in slimy conditions with no decent gear. Memo to self - never climb in damp slimy conditions.

This is a lovely little pitch, and a great solo. Viewed from the little ridge to the left it looks about severe!

think i started in the wrong place, followed a crack system then traversed left towards the tree. felt more like v diff. took a belay just past the tree. upper pitch peters out a bit, but lower part good

Wet, wet, wet. Blowing a hooley. Climbed together with odd belays. Climbed up to summit. Boots and waterproofs. Good training. Probably fun solo in the dry.
