Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionI'll go out on a limb and say the Ridge has the best bouldering in the GJ vicinity (not counting Unaweep, of course). There is a great/classic at nearly every grade up to V7 and potential for more hard, tall lines. Bring a brush and crew to spot you, some of these problems are tall and dangerous.
ROUTE NAME DISCLAIMER: I hiked up here a lot in Spring 2007, and established a few lines and was there when other people (all affiliated with the gym I worked at) put up stuff. We tried to find FA info, but couldn't. If you know of names of these problems that predate 2007 please comment! The lines that I credit myself with the FA I'm 99% positive were never done before (Hesitation, The Bushwhacker, etc.).
Getting ThereOnce at the main area hike west up the big hill. Aim for the Isosceles Boulder and the hike is not too steep. At one point (2 yrs ago) the MSC kids had a Trail Day and cut a trail that started by the Easy Flake Boulder and went more or less straight up. Look for that, but it's probably in bad shape. We could use another trail day here....
