Sheep Skull Crags feature five routes that were climbed by Joe Herbst and friends in the Spring of 1974. The crags consist of several stunning pillars and the routes all seem to include wide, offwidth cracks and chimneys. The cliff faces northeast so the only sunshine is limited to the morning. Descent usually involves rappelling a route or walking off right.
Park at Willow Springs in the first parking area and hike on the trail that heads toward White Rock Spring. The Sheep Skull Crags are located on the left side of the largest gully between Willow Springs and Angel Food Wall. It is across the drainage, to the west of the Ledger Crags. Just before reaching that drainage leave the trail and head across open country to the base of the cliff. The approach from Willow Springs is about 45 minutes.

Worth doing as the sugary parts are made up for by the nicely varnished ow. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
