Description 

Standard Ridge runs north from the Strone Crag area, up past the Rush and Lonely Challenge Walls, ending up above the Glass Ocean area. There is a single 5.6 II running up this beautiful ridge. Expect loose rock and long runouts, especially down low and on the final 4th class pitch.


Getting There 

Approach as for Challenge Buttress. Continue up the gully past Hollow Man, and Winky and Waxman Go Bolting. On the right side of the talus-filled gully, as you hike up, is the Strone Crag. This is the foot of Standard Ridge.

Approach as for Challenge Buttress. Continue up the talus past Winky and Waxman to the Strone Crag on climber's right of the gully. Start here. Gain the ridge and ride it for 8 to 10 pitches. Expect sections of (very) loose rock (wear a helmet!), and sections of excellent bulletproof quartzite. Pass gendarmes on the right (west) for more solid rock.Stop at the gully above Glass Ocean. Descend this gully (to the east). The top of the gully is loose and kinda scary, but it gets better. I'm...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
