Description 

The Lamb is a small tower located on the northeast corner of Sheep Rock. Two climbs that I know of climb this small tower, Sheepish Grin and Sheep in Wolf's Clothing, both were put up by the late Charlie Fowler.


Getting There 

Follow the directions to get to Sheep Rock: "Park in a small pullout on the northwest side of the Tower of Babel. A wash, that can be seen about 100 meters west of the car, runs up towards the Sheep. Follow it to right under the formation, then walk up the cone to the base."

The facing crack that you can see is not 'Sheep in Wolf's Clothing' it is another 5.10 that Charlie put up.

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.
