Description

On 10/10/81, I led Steve Sarns up the north-facing chimney/crack on the big summit block of Tick Dome. We called this summit block the "Sheep's Foot," in keeping with the long-established geographical theme in the area (e.g., Sheep Rock and Sheep's Nose). It does resemble a cloven hoof, when viewed from the northwest.

Location

This is on the north-ish side of Tick Dome's colossal summit boulder.

Protection

Big stuff, although the crack in the back of the initial flaring chimney may take hand-size gear.
