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.

Look for somewhat stiff grades ala Magna Carta and a different style from the typical tech friction at Rushmore. The climbs here are shorter, steeper, and more bouldery. Lots of power layback moves. Jul 15, 2017
