Might be hard 5.10. Start is the same as the route to the left and has a fairly sustained first pitch. The second pitch is the money though. Interesting moves above the belay lead to great moves up a slab between a corner and the arete to the right. The texture change from the first and second pitch is dramatic and interesting. I might of added a bolt to reach the anchors but if you stay above the last bolt it is pretty easy.


This route is on the north face of Sheepshead. It starts in a pocketed alcove about 100 yards below the saddle between Muttonhead and Sheepshead

FA: Scott Ayers. Pitch 1: 5.10+; Pitch 2: 5.11-. From the left this is the forth of five routes that comprise the Barnyard Wall section of The Sheepshead.

While I didn't care for the first pitch due to the crumbly character of the rock, the second pitch is amazing and perhaps the best single pitch on the Sheepshead.
