This route starts at the SE toe before you pass under a large boulder.

P1-This pitch trends right gaining the E face on nice plates and edges. A height dependent crux can stop most mortals below 5'9 but can be aided through.5.11-
P2-Keep trending up and right to a ledge with an anchor. 5.10+
P3-Again trend right off the belay and up beautiful face. 5.10-
P4-A final long face pitch stretches up to a top anchor.5.9

Rap the route.


starts on se arete of muttonhead. 1st pitch traverses onto muttonheads's eastern face. subsequent pitches continually angle up and right.




Wild steep climbing! P1 is a bit grainy, 11-!? P2&3 are classix. Jan 19, 2017

A pretty decent route, specially pitch 2-3 linkup. This whole route could probably be climbed very safely with a third of the bolts placed in it and a single regular rack. Jan 6, 2016

wow amazing route on nice and steep rock, could use a tiny bit more traffic on certain spots but the rest is stellar, and the climb is actually 4 pitches if you don't link pitch 2 and 3 wich would be easily doable. I highly recommand it! Feb 27, 2013
Does this route start at the lower toe of Muttonhead in the descent gully between Muttonhead and Sheepshead? Dec 24, 2012
