Mussypotamia is the last dome of the Little Egypt triumvirate, and is the largest of the three. The climbing on this dome is classic granite with a bit of grain and great patina style flakes. The must do route on this formation is Chick Dead, Dog Killed It, a classic face climb up big green patina flakes. As with all of Little Egypt, this dome faces west and in the summer will bake.

Getting There 

From the top of the trail to the Frontier, continue walking east until you pass the Lambada dome. Mussypotamia will be the giant formation right in front of you. Continue walking toward the dome until you can skirt south toward the middle of the dome. A good landmark is the Flotilla, a giant golden boulder with an overhanging face. At the Flotilla, head east directly to the dome. Be careful as you near the dome as there is a very deep gully that you must negotiate to get to the routes. Approach time is about 45 minutes from the parking area.

Bust some moves right up the vertical face below a big green arch until you can start moving right. The crux is in here somewhere, usually hidden with lichen, but the fingery holds are there when you need them. You can continue way to the right on an easy ramp and clip the anchors of Tricky Goldy if you plan on continuing up the top of the formation....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
