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.

Falconlore is a fun route, perfect for winter, with some great climbing in the middle and some bad rock on the last pitch and a half. The crux pitches have mixed climbing on bolts and gear, with generally well-protected but sometimes committing climbing. If you start early and climb fast, it would be easy to link this route to another 3-4 pitch route on the main face of Entrance Dome, making for a 7-8 pitch day.
