Description 

The Pear Boulders are a good mile from the parking lot, but well worth the hike. Hike as though going to the pear, and keep going past the turnoff for the pear. 50 yards ahead on the right is a large boulder with not much in the way of problems, just past that is a large boulder with an obvious chalked up left angling ramp, this is the sloper ramp problem. This is a little known problem, yet is possibly one of the best probelms on the front range. Jump up and grab the first and best holds on the ramp, and proceed to traverse up and left to the edge, throw a heel on the ramp, then move back right on the beautiful sloping lip. This problem is a little tall and comitting, a couple spotters and pads take the sting out of it. A direct non jumping start has been done that goes at around v9. If one keeps wandering north west parallel to the trail, they might be lucky enough to come across some of the most beautiful and little known bouldering at lumpy, wander around and see what you can find!

I think he just called it The Ramp, but "Sloper Ramp" works to differentiate it from the left-angling problem on the boulder to the Northeast, since Belcer called that one The Ramp too....
