The descent off Sheep A is steep and terribly loose. Typical rotting San Juan red rock. Numerous options, I stuck more southeast on crumbling ledges, northeast looked basically like pure steep talus. Once off Sheep A the ascent up Greenhalgh is much nicer. Very stable talus.

I descended south in between the two and contoured around Sheep A's south side, staying at about 12,200' most of the time. Generally easy, lots of willows on the southwest corner of Sheep. Found a place to hop the Rio Grande and then hiked the road back to Stony Pass.
