Ramp Routes:

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 (Phantasmagorical) and a roof band running along the bottom. This wall has some of the best rock at the Schoolroom. Listed L to R:

1. Homecoming Princess** 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.

2. Blue Steel** 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.

3. Interstellar** 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.

4. Phantasmagorical*** 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.

5. FDR*** 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.
