Description 

Rubik's Ridge is the fairly large rock on the east side of the road. The bottom of the rock tends to have overhangs or roofs on most of its west face. Routes include tough bolted routes (5.12 and up) and moderate to difficult gear protected cracks.

Getting There 

Find a faint trail on the east side of the road. Walk uphill for a minute to the base of the rock. The first rock encountered has a large overhanging band of schist at the bottom. Other routes are found by contouring to the right.
