I hiked a couple of times to Sheep Flat. What a cool place. I once camped there with a friend of mine. I also saw bighorn sheep there, showing the name being appropriate. It is a fun way to access Ontario Peak. I always wanted to hike up Ontario from the south. No routes described there, it looks big, with lots of gain, and probably lots of bushwacking.

Took the trail from Icehouse Canyon and then the trail to Bighorn Peak. Didn't want to backtrack on the trail on the way down so I went down a canyon almost due north about 800 feet and hit the trail very close to Icehouse Saddle.

Went up Falling Rock Canyon and the first scree slope west to the peak immediately east of Sugarloaf summit. Continued further on the ridge to Ontario Peak. Climbed Bighorn on the standard trail and descended from the summit directly to Icehouse saddle. Great hike with a lot of up and down steep scree slopes.

Besides the trail through Kelly's Camp, I've scrambled up numerous chutes and ridges on Ontario's north side. Some are rubble and some have some spots of rock climbing interest. If you're skilled, it offers some snow/ice practice in the winter (be aware that on one outing a member of our party was seriously injured in a fall). Once in 1971 I hiked up Icehouse to Cucamonga, Bighorn and planned on staying the night on Ontario to watch the fireworks before X-country down the north face. It had been a really smoggy day (for those of you that remember those days, I measured how bad it was by how many power poles I could see down a street, bad days were two pole days). I woke up in the dark and was startled by what I thought was a huge forest fire below. Turned out it was the city lights making the smog glow red-orange. Once I had hitched a ride to Icehouse, up Ontario and then hiked down the south side...only time I ever did that: HINT!

Went the standard route up Icehouse Canyon, v e r y crowded (even by Icehouse standards) group of at least twenty at the saddle.
Saw a rattlesnake cruising around in the canyon and a Bighorn Sheep running across the hillside just before Kelly's Camp. Was pretty cool!!
Lots of downed trees to go over/under etc...
Overall was a good day, also didnt find a register at the summit (but didnt look too hard)

Hiked up Icehouse Canyon and then to the "true" summit. Lots of downed dead trees to scramble over and no one on the trail. There was no summit register. If someone's planning to go up, maybe they could bring one? And a chainsaw??

Hiked 5 peaks (plus Ontario false peak) with Travis via Falling Rock Canyon (great cl.2/3 scramble.) Hit Sugarloaf, Ontario, Bighorn, Cucamonga, and Etiwanda before exiting via the Icehouse Canyon trail. We were fortunate to get great views from all five summits before the clouds enveloped the peaks.

I did this peak solo after doing Cucamonga Peak with a group. After coming down from Ontario, I did BigHorn as well. It was a beautiful day and the superb trail makes these peaks so accessible.
