The southern most area at Ibex. This area is a short but solid crag with a number of various routes that are bolted, mixed, and traditional.

Anchors are available on most if not all routes here.

Getting There

Drive south along the frontage road at the base of the Red Monster Area. Stop and park at an old corral. The routes begin here and head north.

Looking at Ryan's picture and seeing that Ben has just added two new lines in this area and realising that actual other interest may be arising in this "remote" part of Ibex, here is a brief list of routes from the Corral Crags to the South Corridor Crag (where is Burning Bits, Ben?...I somehow don't recognise the crag) All are short one pitchers, but to the top of the crag and may be getting repeats, only one of which is in the book for each area.

1. Ewe Love It, 5.9 crack
2. Ewe Make It, 5.12 TR
3. Ewe. F. O., 5.11c bolts
4. Ewe Betch Ewe, 5.12 bolts
5. Ewe For Real, 5.10a bolts
6. Ewe Got It, 5.10c bolts
7. Butt Crack Roof, 5.10 crack
8. Holding Pattern, 5.9 mixed
9. Bodaggette, 5.9 mixed
10.3D Sheep, 5.9 mixed

11. In the Ring With Jose, 5.11c bolts
12. Holey Moley, 5.12 mixed
13. Getting Nowhere Fast, 5.12b mixed
14. Orange Pecan Pie, 5.9 crack
15. Birth Canal, 5.9 crack
16. Impending Doom, 5.7 crack
I think I have another route at Ibex called Burning Bits...it sure is appropriate, though, eh? They burn up there faster than anywhere!! Jan 8, 2008
Hey James,

Melting Bits and Scorpion Slab are up and to the right of what is labeled "Corral Crags" on page 30 of your Ibex book. They are in between Corral Crags and the Syringe in that picture, just left of a prominent buttress and at the top of the largest hill leading up to the crags. I will see if I have a photo shot at a wider angle and post it under Jackson Corral to give you better perspective since I can't explain it very well. Jan 8, 2008
Thanks Ben,
You explained it well! Actually, as you eluded to....the arrow on page 30 is more pointed to what we call "The South Corridor" than the Corral Crags which are further south and where all the "Ewe" routes above the sheep corral. It seems impossible to publish something like a guidebook without inevitable errors! Were those pictures taken recently? Looked like great weather of your dog on the hardpan! I remember a very balmy New Year I once spent there when we did Y2K Crackdown and other Sheep rock climbs.
Thanks again! Jan 8, 2008
The pictures were actually taken in September 2007. I just put off posting those routes until now. Jan 9, 2008

A few years ago I spent Halloween alone at Ibex, which was awesome, and I put a couple of anchors at the top of a route at the JC. The route is around the corner, and to the right of the EWE routes. The route starts in a hand crack for about 20', then up a unprotected prow for about 10 more feet. I TR soloed it, so I didn't get a feel for the grade. Has anybody climbed the thing? The same day I drilled the anchors on the left most route, ewe make it, and tried it a couple of times on TR solo, but I flailed. Fun crag. I really like the 5.11. Jul 16, 2010

I led the crack you're talking about on Saturday. Super fun hand crack. I'd say it goes at like a 5.8 or something. Sucked up a #3 and a few #2 Camalots like a champ. Pretty mellow climbing, but steeper than a lot of the routes in the area that have softer ratings. Would be stoked to see some more beta here on the Corral Crags. Mar 17, 2013

The first three routes from the left are shown a bit wrong in the guidebook photo. Ewe Love It and Ewe Make It are actually right next to each other with the 12 following the line that is marked for the 9. Ewe F.O.(5.11) follows the line marked for Ewe Make It.

Basically just shift each route one spot to the left. Also all of the climbs go to the top of the cliff, there are no anchors at the first horizontal break. The written descriptions are accurate. Mar 16, 2015
