I hate this climb. The hand jams pulling the roof were so insecure and scar-leaving when I flailed on this route shortly after I started climbing at White Rock. After I figured out how to do it, it's still no fun. Since the rock quality is ok, it's worth doing once so that you know you don't need to do it again, I suppose.
This climb goes up the obvious crack on the right side of the Ramp feature. Scramble up blocks to the roof. Two moves of impossible-to-rate, hand-size dependent jams turn the roof, or lieback it. 4th class crack in a slab to the top.
The route description or rating or something is transposed with "the Ramp" in Rock Climbing: New Mexico.
Cams to 3" (try not to place them where you need to jam at the crux). Anchor off a juniper at the top, or build an anchor with gear.
