Java Dome is really three distinct faces, North, South, and West. Its south face is home to a decent selection of lower-end difficulty, slab routes. These routes are basically bolt-protected. The rock quality on this south face is fairly good. There are a few routes on the west face as well which require traditional pro. Fortunately, there are rarely crowds here. Enjoy.
From Denver, go West on US Hwy 285, go South (left) on Foxton Rd, this Ts at the South Platte River, head East (left) to South Platte, then it curves South, go 3 miles. There is a prominent, large boulder across the South Platte River just North of the parking area. Park where legal. 2 drainages can be hiked up. The North one has Atlantis Slab a short way up. Choose the South drainage. Hike 20 minutes or so. Find the South face. Scramble up and around some boulders to find this route on the right side of the South face.

This is great high stepping and reaching on good holds. The next sction is really cool too. Edge delicately up a dead planar slab past decently spaced old bolts to the anchor. This is a beautiful, flawless slab with nice edges and good rock. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
