Jazz Dome is a slab overlooking the North Fork of the South Platte just west of the small town (and rocks) of Dome Rock. It's south- and east-facing and has a few bolted slab routes.
From the intersection of Platte River Road and S. Foxton Road, drive just under 2.5 miles east. Just past a driveway on the left, park in a bend in the river on the right. Cross the road and do the short hike to the rock. You can see it from the road.

Moonlight Cocktail 5.7+ 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b PG13 CO : South Platte : ... : Jazz Dome
Boulder up to the first bolt. This is the crux, and it is definitely harder than the 5.5 rating given in Hubbel's book. Though after the first bolt the climbing eases considerably.The bolts are shoddy, but it seems that if they were more solid that the placements would be ok. I just don't think any of them would hold much of a fall.I also would not consider this a beginner route, but it is a good introduction to bolted, slab climbing. Enjoyable route!...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
