BETA PHOTO: Overview of Mussypotamia

Description 

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. The right side of the crag is less developed and has a slightly different approach.


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. For the right side of the formation routes, you head directly south at the deep gully until you can cross to the base of the wall. Look for the long wide crack, Blue Balls Conga Line as a landmark. Approach time is about 50 minutes from the parking area.

Pitch 1: Good rock and good edges lull you into thinking you have this one in the bag... then the crux hits you right at the top. Anchors are at a good stance. Single rope rap from here.Pitch 2: Open project on very grainy rock. NO bolts in place.Pitch 3: Trivial 5.6 slab to gain the summit. Not sure if there are bolts on the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
