The Muttonhead dome is the slightly less prominent dome to the left of the Sheepshead as viewed from the Sheepshead parking area. Much of the climbing on this dome is mixed trad/sport routes. The rock quality is generally solid but a helmet is definitely still a good idea.
Follow the same general approach for the Sheepshead. Once you reach the base of the Sheepshead take the trail that heads westward along the base of the formation and starts heading up the gully between the Sheepshead and the Muttonhead. After about five to ten minutes there will be a faint climbers trail that diverges from the main trail and heads west. Take this trail for another ten to fifteen minutes and you will arrive at the Southwest face of the Muttonhead dome.
