Frick, Chumley and myself were all Peeley / Sheep virgins.
(Although Chumley wasn't real sure about this being the first time for Sheep)
BobP was more than accommodating, being gentle, taking it slow and leading us by the hand to the promised peaks.

The route to Peeley is well worn and for sure the simpler of the 2 assents. Lots-o-HikeArizona members represented in the Peak Register.

It's a steep drop off of Mount Peeley and a steep climb up Sheep Mountain, but when I drew this one up, the TOPO maps did not make this look like there was much gain between Peeley and Sheep Mountain. In the 2 miles between the two peaks, there was 10 or so "Bumps" over mostly rocky terrain, gaining 750'. Three of us did this hike in shorts as the brush was not all that bad.

Views were great from atop Sheep Mountain. We took some lunch here and Bob chucked some more Agave.
Back across the ridgeline, skirted Mount Peeley and jumped on the Divide Trail for the walk back to the TH. It was good to be back on a portion of the AZT again.

Wow, hiked w/ Bob and Nick twice in two months!... The part of the beaver was played by Chumley.

Thanks for driving Nicky (although we know what it'd be like if you rode in the back seat up and down FR201) :o
