Description 

Sheep Creek is located at mile marker 18.5 just as you reach the base of Thompson Pass. The climbs Angle and Spring Loaded can be see from the highway. All the routes in the area are exposed to high avalanche threat so keep an eye on the snow conditions. This canyon is home to a number of moderate and difficult multi pitch climbs up to 800' tall. Make sure not to park in the way of the DOT snow plows.

Getting There 

Drive to the canyon located at mile marker 18.5 and find the nearest parking spot. Hike up the drainage to your objective and have fun.
