[This was previously entered as Satan's Slab. Ridge Two, containing Satan's Slab] is the second ridge rising out of Skunk Canyon to the north. Its immense, smooth east face is visible for long distances to the east. [Skunk Canyon from Ridge One's West Face] is closed from February 1 to July 31 most years for raptor nesting.
Follow the directions to the west side of Stairway to Heaven. To reach climbs on the east face, simply cross the gully and you've arrived. To reach climbs on the west face, you have to get between [Ridge Two] and the Achean Pronouncement, which rises from Skunk Canyon to the south. Stay near the Skunk Canyon creek and find a scrambling route through some boulders between Satan's Slab and the Achean Pronouncement, then proceed west and north under the overhanging west face.
