|Hunter S. Thompson Dome
The climb is described as a 2pitch climb by swain, with a 140' pitch followed by a second to the top, but I did not find a good stance of anchor and preferred to climb this as a single 225' (70-meter) pitch to the top of the cliff.
Climb the right-most of the two left-leaning cracks on the left side of the wall to reach a big hueco and some bolts. Clip and go to reach a second crack system that runs out before the climb does- and leaves the leader to finish on a heady but moderate face.
Belay up top on trad gear.
Toward the left-hand side of the crag, and just right of 'Walking the Vertical Beach' there is another route with left-leaning crack system that is followed to access a few bolts and then another crack though a small roof.
A standard light rack plus bolts for draws. There are places where you will be climbing well above gear, but not difficult moves.

There are lots of holds but the rock is pretty thin and breaky. There is a fantastic belay ledge in the middle that has a nice view. The second pitch is very run out but easy, less than 5.6. At the top there is a thin landing with a tree to which you can anchor. The walk-off is in the back to the right.
