Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"There are several routes scattered about the small cliffs along the Ridge Trail near the 10-foot, 4th-class downclimb (a.k.a. the Ridge Trail “bottleneck”). The two routes described in the previous edition, Ridge Trail Direct (5.12b/c) and The Stud (5.8-), are now missing bolt hangers. Given the volume of hikers that pass beneath these routes, it’s probably best not to toprope (or rebolt) these lines. There are certainly many other route possibilities off either side of this section of the Ridge Trail if you’re willing to explore a little."
