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.

Lo Shu 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b SD : Iron Mountain : Rubiks Ridge
Starts on face on good holds. Crux comes between 2nd-3rd bolt. There are only 3 bolts still a little tricky after the 3rd bolt as you get higher it eases off. The last 25-30ft is unprotected. A fall wouldn't be a good idea as its in a corridor and you will certainly deck. This route feels Bouldery if anything....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
