Fairview Dome is one of the largest and steepest domes that is easily accessed from the road in Tuolumne. It is home to such classics as the Regular Route (one of Roper and Steck's picks) and Lucky Streaks, modern testpieces such as Nightshift, as well as some harder (and scarier) lines. Fairview offers steep crack systems as well as more typical face/slab climbing.
Park at the obvious pullout south of the road that is 3.5 miles from the store and 4 miles from Tenaya Lake. The trail to the dome takes about 15 minutes to hike and leaves you near the center of the Dome.

This is a great and sustained route -- somewhat tough on the toes, but the crux is easy for the grade. All-in-all the rock isn't quite as good as the Regular Route, but it is much steeper -- it's a toss up as to which one is the better route.P1: Begin by a large block that is leaning against the dome. Head up on somewhat low angle terrain with limited opportunities for pro, do a tough step left, then contour up and right and belay on an obvious platform ledge below the beginning of a long left...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
