Ruby Mountain-- East Ridge
This is the middle portion of the east ridge, to climb which there are several options. The rock bands shown here offer two such possibilities: the cliffs to the left, and the higher outcrop on the right. I saw Class 3 ways through the left-side cliffs, but I actually climbed the higher outcrop, where there was exposure, rotten rock, and Class 4 terrain in gullies and on slabs.
