Dog Dome is a smaller formation located on the northeast shoulder of the more well-known Lembert Dome. Dog Dome is about 300' tall and hosts four recorded routes, the most popular being the North Face (5.8, 3 pitches).
About 1/4 mile east from the TM Lodge, jump on the Dog Lake/Young Lakes Trail and hike north. Once in the open meadow, the north face of Dog Dome can be seen off to your left. Allow 15-20 minutes for the approach.
