North America, United States, Colorado, Sheep Rock, Main Dome, South Platte Area

Sheep Rock, Main Dome, South Platte Area. The obvious thin crack on this beautiful dome previously had been an aid route (III, 5.8, A2). Steve Spaar, Don Cardinale and I, in May of 1982, freed the sustained second pitch at 5.11. We named it Charley Don’t Surf. While doing the climb, I noticed a possible line of water grooves and thin cracks to the right. In August, 1983 Eric Boelke and I took three days to establish another very fine route we called The Divine Ms. M (III,5.10a). It is well protected. It starts with Charley Don’t Surf and then heads right.
