Description 

"The Ramp" is one of the better beginner's climbs here, with good gear and interesting moves all the way up.

Pull the initial roof with the help of a nice finger crack and a jug. Head up the low angled hand crack to a stance under another roof. Turn a roof on its right with thin feet (crux).


Location 

Route # 18 in beta photo, look for a low angle slab up high guarded by a roof at the bottom. The route heads up the crack left of the offwidth-looking crack.


Protection 

Standard rack to 2"
Bigger cams (#3,#4) are useful for a gear anchor. You may be able to tie off trees as well.
