Sheep and Little Sheep Mountains

Sheep (10,635′) and Little Sheep (9,679′) Mountains are in a line heading northward from Mt. Mestas. Both of these mountains are composed of the same granitic stock materials as Mt. Mestas, Silver Mountain, Rough Mountain, and the Spanish Peaks. Climbing on them is climbing mostly on boulders and loose talus slopes. Even under the trees nearly everything is loose.

The “mass” of both of these mountains is owned by the BLM. However, there is at least one subdivision of 35-40 acre properties at the foot of them bordering BLM.
