Description

"Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to Terrapin."

This is a beautiful and secluded wall above a pond called "Sheep Tarn" just to the west of the small pass between Ross Lake and the Wasson Fork of Jakey's Creek. Route development is a continuing process here. I placed a summit register on this sharp peak on 8-6-17 and found no evidence the summit had been reached previously.

The descent is the same for all routes: scramble down to a large grassy ledge with a huge and prominent dead tree and rappel off the tree. I found a very old sling on this tree. I do not know what route was climbed by the person who placed this sling, and I do not know if they visited the summit (I found no evidence of this). I am claiming first ascents of the routes I climb until someone can inform me otherwise.
