Description 

The is the west face of the summit dome of the Sheep Rock mini-massif.


Getting There 

Two choices. One is to hike up the gully to Acid Rock, then scramble around the south side to the base of the summit dome and the Velcro Wall. The other is to do the Tour De Platte. From the top of Acid Rock, it is a bit of a scramble form the saddle down to the base of the Velcro Wall.

Any combination of routes, starting with Helens Dome, then Acid Rock, and finally the Velcro Wall to the summit of Sheep Rock. Only one rappel to descend, from the summit down Acid Crack. The classic and original Tour De Platte is my favorite because it is easier on the toes, requires gear-placing skills, and has the good rock.
