The Ramp is the 95th highest Idaho Peak. It is one of the many peaks that surround the spectacular Lake Creek drainage. Climbing from Lake Creek will take you by trail to Round Lake in roughly 6.0 miles. The route is crosscountry from there with the crux being getting above treeline through the lush forest. Livingston Douglas provided the climbing route information for the northwest ridge which is set out below.
