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.

On the right side of the cave two thirds of the way up Ridge 2 is an obvious, thin crack running up a clean slab. Pull through the right side of the cave to gain the crack. It's cruxy getting established above the roof, but things back off considerably after that. The higher you go, the more the angle kicks back. "Stud" converges under the trees with Mouth from the South on the right and generates a good clean crack on excellent stone.This is a fine line....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
