You may need access from the local Rancher, He owns several acres around the dome itself.
From Alcova, go 7.5 miles south. Take left fork 15miles to Dome Rock on the left. When you're parallel to the rock, turn east onto dirt road. The main area is on the west side. A staple area for climbers from Casper.
The Problem is balancey and technical from start to finish, its a slab/friction climb with a slight overhang to the rim, follow the seam all the way through, one good crimp just before the last move, then Dyno over lip and catch a ridge/slopper... then top out. ...[more]Browse More Classics in WY
Access has changed. It's quite complicated. See Kevin in Mountain Sports in Casper. He has the beta. Let's not piss off the local ranchers.

My partner and I attempted to climb at dome last weekend. We had the guidebook to Fremont/dome but couldn't get beta at the mt sports shop in Casper, since they were closed for the weekend.... We turned off the main road (406, I think?) to the small road headed toward the rock. A rancher truck followed us. We stopped, the driver got out, told us we were on private land, and threatened our lives several times.... We tried to apologize/reason for a bit, he only became more angry. We then turned around and headed back to Fremont. Does anyone know if there is an approach to this area that keeps us on BLM land/roads? We thought we were on the right track, but the rancher man mentioned that lately he has been chasing off many climbers/campers from this area.... Would be great to get updated access information posted. Thanks!

Great link, thanks for the approach info. Will try that next time. I hate talking to landowners at the end of a fun day. She was resonable and nice. She wishes we would park at the Dome Rock Res. and walk from there.
Access to Dome Rock was a bit tricky until recently. Now both the North and South approaches are marked by signs and maps posted along the Cortez County Road. These signs are courtesy of the BLM -thanks!!
A rancher assaulted me and a friend with his truck after we had climbed Dome Rock in 2012. He has since been found guilty of felony aggravated assault. If he approaches anyone in the area regarding trespassing, he is in violation of his probation. If this happens, call 911 immediately.
Also, it seems that he has approached/assaulted many people in the past. If this is the case with you, please contact me via the Mountainproject email.
