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.

First pitch: From the anchor stance go straight up until the bolts start heading right. Follow the stellar patina plates up the face. Move right on the ramp to the Tricky Goldy anchors to continue to the top.Second pitch: Walk the plank on the grainy ramp until you can clip a bolt. Continue up good rock over a few roof or two on some giant huecos. Could be a bit exposed and run out, but that's why you came up here right? Move right after going over the last roof to an anchor on the slab.Th...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
