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 cross-country from there with the crux being getting above treeline through the lush forest. The shortest route to the summit is via the Northeast Ridge. USGS Smiley Mountain
