The Hanging Rib** V4 6b / f6B
[Night session at Burbage, 1 kb]From a low start, pull over the nose. From standing is easier - V2. A low sit-down start under Remergence, then traversing the low roof and up onto the arete, gives the classic Submergence, V10. The direct version from the same low start is Blind Drunk, V11. © ROCKFAX
V4 from low slot and edge, V2 from standing. Various elimimates exist <Also called Arete Problem(Font 6b) or Remergence #12 (B6) depending on which guide you are using!>

Top end V4, maybe not quite V5 though. Very worth doing either way, steep grit problems are rarely this good at this grade

Astounded to get this after a few disconsolate tries last summer when I couldn't even do the stand-up. Went for the fabled 'one last try' of the first move, couldn't believe I'd latched it, and topped out seconds later. All on my tod.
