Description 

This is a ~10 foot slab/face with a good landing. The rock type is quite uncharacteristic of typical Sheep's Nose granite. It is very fine-grained and solid with an interesting, coral-like texture.

Getting There 

Located in the southeast side of Sheep's Nose, in the same general area as Two Shakes. If you're looking at the Sheep's nose formation from the V2 roof crack (listed on M.P. as Unknown Roof), go right (east?) about 100 yards, staying at approximately the same elevation. You should come across this as you search through the boulder field.

Climbing Season

For the West Creek area.

Starts on the crimp flake and climbs straight up the face using small crimps and some technical footwork. Any use of the crack to the right of the face significantly reduces the difficulty....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
