Description

This route starts on the obvious south-leaning ramp and proceeds all the way to the summit of the feature. After climbing the entire length of the ramp up to the SW corner of Ramp Ridge, take to a vertical 20-30ft off-width/chimney (crux). Finish by climbing a left-leaning crack feature. The rock quality is quite good.

We climbed The ramp in three pitches as described below, but there are numerous options/alternatives.

P1 (5.6, 80ft): climb the ramp until it possible to traverse slightly right to a good belay stance (more particularly, belay seat) on a east-west ridge.

P2 (5.7+, 150ft): continue up the ramp, with one somewhat exposed move made easier thanks to a high left jug. Arrive on a platform atop the ramp, and climb an obvious chimney/off-width.

P3 (5.7, 70ft): climb a left leaning crack to the summit of Ridge Ridge.

Protection

Bring a double rack in Camalot 0.3 to 3, with a few smaller pieces and perhaps a #4, and plenty of slings for extension. To get down, we scrambled down a bit to the left/NNE and did a 25m rap off of webbing tied around a pinch between boulders. From there, it's a short walk down the gully north of Ramp Ridge back to the start of the route.
