“The south ridge approach to The Ramp.”— Abe H
This trail has an extremely difficult rating due to exposure at the very top of the peak.
The route described here is the south ridge approach, which is normally accessed from the Glen Alps Trailhead via Powerline Pass Trail and Ship Lake Pass Trail.
From Ship Lake Pass, head north up the dirt/scree/tundra to a fairly well traveled trail that falls just west of the actual ridgeline. The final 30 feet or so does get fairly exposed, but there is good footing and the use of hands is not necessary. Standing at the high point is also not recommended due to extreme exposure on the north face.
