Ramp Routes

Utah > Wasatch Range > Northern Wasatch > Ogden > Schoolroom

Description

A good warm-up or beginner wall. There are a few good moderate sport climbs and a handful of trad routes here. Morning shade/Afternoon sun.

Getting There

Go to 22nd street in Ogden and follow it east. The road ends at a parking lot. The trail starts at the north-east corner of the parking lot. Follow a maze of mountain bike trails east to the Bonneville Shoreline trail. Follow this trail for a couple minutes as it bends to the south. A climbers trail will break off left straight up the hill. This leads to the base of a grassy ramp. Hike up this ramp to the south. You will know that you have arrived at The Ramp Routes when the first bolted routes appear. Approach time is about 20-35 min.

Ramp Routes:<br>
<br>
These routes are located along the large ramp mentioned in the approach.  These are about three fourths of the way up the ramp to Asbury Park.  Look for a wall with a rounded right-facing arête ([[105804439]]) and a roof band running along the bottom.  This wall has some of the best rock at the Schoolroom. Listed L to R:<br>
<br>
1. [[105804416]]** 5.9 - 5 bolts. FA: Janelle Jakulewicz (JJ) Sep ’02.  Climb a heavily fractured vertical face on excellent rock.  Veer right for the anchor as the climb rolls over onto an easy slab.  Somewhat grassy.<br>
<br>
2. [[105804433]]** 5.9 - 4 bolts. FA: JJ Sep ’02.  Climbs through the roof band at an obvious break.  Not as powerful as the next route, but more devious.  There is a long runout from the 4th bolt to the anchor on easy climbing.<br>
 <br>
3. [[105804436]]** 5.10b - 5 bolts.  FA: Mike Anderson (MA) and Luke Osborne (LO) Apr ‘02.  Climb up a slab to a steep roof which is graced with a big jug at the lip.  The route stays sustained above the roof despite the occasional ledge rest.  Fun climbing on great rock.<br>
    <br>
4. [[105804439]]*** 5.9 or 5.7 - 4 bolts. FA: MA and LO Apr ‘02.  This route offers two options for reaching the arête.  Start in a crack and climb up to a steep overhang.  After clipping the second bolt you can crank directly over the roof left of the bolt (5.9), or climb onto the ledge on the right, then hand traverse out to the arete along a good crack (5.7).  Clip the third bolt and enjoy beautiful rock on the arête to the top.<br>
  <br>
5. [[105804479]]*** 5.10a Gear to 3”.  FA: Colby Wayment (CW) and his friend Spencer, Jan ’03.  No Photo. This route, a 40’ vertical crack that passes over the right side of a small roof, is 100’ up the hill from Phantasmagorical.  Gymnastic moves, good rock and excellent protection make this an outstanding route. <br>

[Hide Comment] Surprisingly clean rock with some fun moves. This wall sits in a little alcove protected from wind. Great spring/fall climbing area. All routes end at a pair of bolts with rap rings on them. Many variations exist in addition to the listed routes. You'll know you are at the wall when the ramp trail angles up and to your left.

[Hide Comment] It took just about 20 minutes to hike here from the 22nd street trailhead. I'd heard a lot about how confusing it is to getup here, but some new signs have been installed, and it was easy to find. Rock quality was great. Weathered quartzite. Reminded me of the rock at Ruth Lake in the Uintas. Not very sharp (unlike most of the other quartzite spots in the Ogden area).

It was partly sunny and about 55 degrees the afternoon we climbed. I can imagine it being pretty nasty if it's above 70 here in the afternoon. Also, had heard a lot about how bad the wasps are here. Didn't see a single one. All in all it was extremely picturesque and pleasant climbing! May 11, 2016

[Hide Comment] Hornets take over this cliff in the fall. Either climb it before the wall warms up in the morning or discover a new definition of spicy climbing. Oct 25, 2019
