Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
