Though it's somewhat off the beaten path, The Ramp is a nice long moderate with good protection, well worth the hike to get to it.

Starting below a left-leaning corner system, climb the face on the left, making some balancy moves to establish yourself on a ledge. Move up and right into the corner, then climb up and left through the series of ramps/corners. Finish at a tree slung with webbing and rap rings.


The Ramp starts about 250 yards right of End of the Road. The main Roadside cliffline is interrupted just past End of the Road by a sizeable wash/gully. Cross this gully and follow a vague trail along the resumed cliffline. Continue a good distance; just after making a scramble over some boulders, look for the Ramp corner system. A good landmark is the bolts for the sport climb The Odyssey; The Ramp starts about 20' left of this.


Mostly small to medium gear. Tricams and hexes are useful. Rap from the slung tree at the top.

slung boulder at top good as of 5.18.16. if going, consider taking new webbing. lots of sun up there.

I was pleasantly surprised by how good this route is; when I saw "ramp" in the name, I envisioned something along the lines of easy inclined ledges, but it's nothing like that at all. Each of the corner systems has its own little sequences to solve, and most end at a fairly comfortable stance where you can scope out the next section. Make sure your belayer is spotting you on the hard start. Overall, an excellent 5.8. Nov 7, 2010
