BETA PHOTO: Route line of Muttonhead SE Arete.


engaging climbing on muttonhead's eastern side. 1st pitch has height dependent crux that most mortals will probably end up aiding. bolts on harder ground and run-outs on the easy stuff. one of the first routes of the sheepshead complex to see morning sun.


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


many bolts. anchors to rap route.

Does this route start at the lower toe of Muttonhead in the descent gully between Muttonhead and Sheepshead?

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!

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.
