Description

This is the ramp on the north facing side of Lee's Peak and can be seen from Anthony Lake. Often holds snow late into the summer but can be by-passed by climbing on the face ramp of the ramp rather than in the corner. Three easy pitches of climbing can be found on the ramp. The second pitch which moves around a block can be challenging if water is present. Pro is solid but may be well spaced. The crack on the right side starts out quite large but narrows as it goes up.

Location

Descend to the northeast to Angell Basin which is between Gunsight Mountain and Lee's Peak and returning to the Hoffer Lake trail.

My partner and I combined the Slab Route (Lake Lookout) and Ramp Route (Lees Peak) into one fun alpine adventure. We used the saddle between them for the traverse between and descent back down to the Hoffer lakes and eventually the CG. There's a lot less opportunity for pro then what's described or seen, so be fine with running it out in some places. It never gets difficult, but the fact that you are climbing alpine granite in Oregon is what brought you here. Gear: 70m rope, standard rack, 8-10 alpine draws, and some offset nuts. The ramps are huge - pick a line and make it happen, it's your adventure. Sep 23, 2018
