Sheep in Wolf's Clothing

The first 20' of this route is shared with Virgin Wool on Sheep Rock. Climb up the slabby sandy loose corner until you can cut right on a ledge to access the crack system on The Lamb. Place some small cams and start up the crack that quickly widens to hands, pass a small roof and a OW pod. Above the pod is some less straight forward climbing and a traverse left over a solid block to the belay.
From the belay climb 15' up the obvious OW/chimney and scramble to the summit. Down climb to the anchor. A spotter is nice.
The route follows the crack system on the Northeast face of The Lamb.
Everything from tiny to a new #5 camalot. A few extra #2 and #3 camalots might be useful. One 60 meter rope is enough to get down. Anchor consists of 2 bomber drilled pins. Bleached webbing was replaced with brown cord as of 4/13/07.

Another Charlie Fowler climb;. Everyday doesn't have to be multi-pitch tower climbing. Here's another short, one pitch free climb, close to the road. Did this one with Cyndie Bransford and Tony Sartin in Mar. 1994;....it's fun;....Yeah; it aint' The Titan, but for those who "collect" desert tower summits.......well........
