Thanks to Ronald James for adding this peak.

Sheep Mountain is located in the Mt. Baker - Snoqualmie National Forest immediately one mile east of Barlow Pass, which on the scenic Mountain Loop Highway. It can be climbed in one day. The usual route is via a gully on the west slope of the mountain. The gully can be seen about a mile south of Barlow Pass where Monte Cristo Road crosses the South Fork Sauk River. Sheep Mountain has 1126 feet of prominence with low footings created by the South Fork Sauk River on its west flank, and Elliott Creek on its northeast flank. Views from the summit include Sloan Peak to the east across the Elliott Creek side, and Del Campo Peak to the southwest across South Fork Sauk River.

Refer to Fred Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 2, for climbing route information.
