The Entrance Dome is the main South facing dome which you see upon entering the East Stronghold. This is the main wall which towers above Out of Towners' Dome and Wasteland to the East. The formation is big and beautiful and hosts a handful of old school Traditional climbs. The Entrance dome is positioned at the mouth of the canyon and provides views of the intricate walls surrounding it, as well as the vast valley below. This dome is complicated and requires route finding skills. The rock can also be scary in places.

Getting There 

Turn Right after the cattle guard. Park at the pull off on the left hand side and follow the trail and cairns through the drainage. If you pass the main pull off chances are you will find your way to the large pull off in front of Batline Dome. It is only a 45-60 minute approach from here.

Full Circle is a fairly serious outing due to the old school nature of the route, but is great for climbers looking for this type of climb. The rock can be spotty in places and is considered more straight forward than some of the other routes on the Entrance Dome which can be complicated and hard to follow.P1: 4-5 Bolts lead up 5.5 Terrain to marginal pro or an easy run-out and a two bolt anchor on a large ledge. The Climbing gets easier as you go (140').P2: Marginal pro off the belay on similar...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
