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

Jez did the the first hard pitch and I, together with a squadron of RAF, managed the short easy second. Topped out at the same time as Phil B climbing the adjacent route and together with the Hother lad we all shared much bon ami and mutual congrats. What a fine bunch of chaps we are! Was much relieved to survive the rock avalanche while belaying.

Ld P1. Tricky :) Fannyed around for far too long on the crux of P1, but then used wider holds to climb on.

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.
