Ridge starts with creek crossing about 0.25 mile south above Ruby Lake -- somewhere around (N37.4096 W118.7706) -- (If flow is strong, might require detour farther south). An early scramble, then lots of hiking on scree and sand, perhaps another scrambling opportunity, then lots of talus. Later the talus gets steeper and feels more like interesting scrambling. Then more and better and harder climbing opportunities into 5th class difficulty, with interesting towers to cross (some optional) to reach the summit tower (N37.4089 W118.7822) of Ruby Peak.
