Description 

The is the west face of the summit dome of the Sheep Rock mini-massif.

Getting There 

Two choices. One is to hike up the gully to Acid Rock, then scramble around the south side to the base of the summit dome and the Velcro Wall. The other is to do the Tour De Platte. From the top of Acid Rock, it is a bit of a scramble form the saddle down to the base of the Velcro Wall.

This is as close to doing Half Dome, without the cables, as we can get in the Denver area. Climbers where bagging hard summits at Chair Rocks in the 1950s, so I think Sheep Rock was probably summited in that decade.From the "upper saddle" a finger crack diagonals up the easy slab. A rappel is normally done to descend. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
