Ridge 2 saw some of the early sport development in the late '80s and early '90s. While it has never seemed quite as interesting as Ridge 4, perhaps because it is shorter, Ridge 2 does host some stout routes. However, the majority of lines tick in between 5.9 and mid-5.11.
Approach Ridge 2 just you would if going to Ridge 4 or the Secret Crag; however, at the fork leading to these two crags, stay on the primary trail heading due West. After several hundred feet, another branch in the trail heads North and to Ridge 2. Like all of these South-facing ribs, just hump along beside the crag to access the routes.

Ridge two has two sections, the small lower section with 7 known routes, and the upper section, which bears at least 25.
