Comments: Led this route at the Southern Adirondack Climber's Festival...good route and good crag.

However, the anchors for the Gamma Ray Arete will twist the rope horribly during the final lower-off. Probably better to rap the final lower-off.

Thanks to all who have cleaned and developed this crag...fun climbing!

Comments: Just got through swinging leads on this one.

Each pitch has individual character and challenges every climbing skill...maintains grade for entire length. Protection is good...used everything from small brass stoppers to a Number 4 cam.

First pitch is amazing; second pitch is indescribable; third pitch is tech and if the three previous pitches were not enough...the fourth pitch is burly and delicate at the same time! I found that the undercling roof section on the fourth p... more >>

Comments: I believe the photograph is of the Octopussy/Night Mare area.

Arachnid Traction starts farther right (out of the photo) of these and finishes in the left-leaning hand crack in the upper right corner of the photo and right of the cedar tree with the rap slings.

Comments: We recently completed some routes on the Sheephead this March. Really awsome routes. Totally underestimated the approach and descent time and effort needed. The climing seemed like the easy part.

Anyway, I would like to thank Geir Handal for all the topos and route descriptions for the Sheephead. Great work. I will be looking forward to returning to complete more routes.

Comments: The most fun route on the wall. I agree that there may be too many bolts.

Comments: Stick clipped the first bolt (sketchy thin moves with potential ankle breaker rocks below). Fun short route with the thin crux move at a bolt. Difficultly rating opinion: 5.11 minus. Great little wall with good routes.
