Sheep Mountain

Came on that one from the North (Jean) to Prison Road, parallels the I-15 and parked at the Side of the Road. You can see Sheep Mountain ahead of you. Followed a Wash in the beginning till reaching a Road which brought me into an Easterly Direction in line with the Peak. Gets steeper very quickly and the Cliffs more apparent. There are a couple of Cliff Bands you need to work your way around. Looks more difficult than it is, nevertheless its still Class 2 Scramble maybe even Class 3 in places but it works with some patience to get up there. You will find some Sheep Trails which are easy to follow as you travel to your left and gaining the Saddle between a False Summit and the Summit. As you look up it looks very intimidating, once you get going the Puzzle soles itself and some faint Sheep Trails are there to follow. A few more step up and you are on the Summit. Despite looking very difficult it wasn’t but do not underestimate it as it is still loose and sharp Limestone. Not a beginners Peak from this side. Once I signed the Register and took some Pictures I mad my way down, deciding to go straight down to make this a Loop. Its steep, loose and attention is needed, as you don’t want to slip on the loose gravel. Drop down into a Gully and follow the Ridge further down till reaching a Sandy Road, which you can follow in a westerly direction before getting back to your ascent wash and the Car. A Fun Route but experience is needed on this kind of terrain to truly enjoy it. Happy Hiking, Josef
