Ridge 2 saw some of the early sport development in the late '80s and early '90s. While it has never seemed quite as interesting as Ridge 4, perhaps because it is shorter, Ridge 2 does host some stout routes. However, the majority of lines tick in between 5.9 and mid-5.11.
Approach Ridge 2 just you would if going to Ridge 4 or the Secret Crag; however, at the fork leading to these two crags, stay on the primary trail heading due West. After several hundred feet, another branch in the trail heads North and to Ridge 2. Like all of these South-facing ribs, just hump along beside the crag to access the routes.

Mouth of the South 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c CO : Boulder : ... : Ridge 2
This climb is just left of 'South Of The Mouth,' a massive right-trending flake and corner system, perhaps 50m uphill from the bolted routes Slab Left and Slab Right. The route's is distinguished by the bolts running up through a series of big (and I mean BIG) pockets and incuts up to a crux at mid-height (3rd bolt) where the pockts end in favor of small holds and a sloper rail. There is a large pine tree growing against the cliff just left of this line.Cli...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
