BETA PHOTO: Barnyard Wall Routes 1-4. This route is the secon...


Pitch 1 (Mixed, 5.9+, 100ft): Follow a shallow right-facing corner for 25ft to reach the first bolt. Cross a wide platform to find a puzzling fork at a bulge; left or right? Next make a large, gear-protected backwards 'c' to finish the pitch.

Pitch 2 (Sport, 5.10-, 100ft): Climb a beautiful right-trending seam. Disembark to the left and soldier on to the chains.


From the left this is the second of five routes that comprise the Barnyard Wall section of the Sheepshead. The Barnyard Wall is located on the northwest side of the Sheepshead. These routes are uphill from Ewephoria and the first routes encountered when walking off the Sheepshead.

Approximately 5 feet to the left is the first of the Barnyard Wall routes. 100 feet to the right and in an alcove are the third and forth routes.


Pitch 1: Bolts, gear, and chains. Approximately 50% bolt protected. A single set of cams to 3 inches is sufficient. No micro-cams or nuts were placed by our party.

Pitch 2: Bolts and chains.

This is a fun route. The first pitch is a bit run out at the top if I remember correctly.
