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.
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.

Burley and awkward moves right out of the station leads to great patina flake climbing above. The anchor is not so great at the start of this pitch and the stance leaves something to be desired... but the route makes up for it....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
