Carnivore Pinnacle & Lappy McDome Rock Climbing
The Carnivore Pinnacle & Lappy McDome
This is a less-visited area adjacent to the Sheepshead, with quality rock, and 2-pitch routes. The approach is not much longer than that of the Sheepshead and the Crisis Center, but is fifth class. These rocks provide a good alternative if the Sheepshead has a crowd. Bob Kerry's topo
Head up the gully to the right of the Sheepshead as if approaching the Crisis Center, but continue up the gully until you reach the jumble of boulders at the top of the gully. Climb behind and through these boulders (5.6ish) and over a fallen dead tree to reach a narrow ledge with trees and bushes. Follow this ledge to the right, around a large boulder and to another gully to find the rocks, which are hidden from view when one is at the base of Sheepshead. The first route you will see is Eat Me, which is a short way into the gully behind the boulder, and on the left side of the Pinnacle.
There is a good rap station at the top of the boulders. The anchors are actually on the Sheepshead, to your left as you emerge from the gully.

The approach to this route is very steep. After getting under the boulder you will find a rope with knots in it to help you through the 5.6 section. Definitely one of the longest and surprise approach i have came across.
