Little Half Dome Rock Climbing
This small boulder is located in the Morter rock city park back and left of the main wall. It is about 15 feet tall and slightly overhanging in the middle bulge of the rock. You know, it looks like half dome, wonder how it got it's name.
Offering easier routes in the V0 - V3 range, Little Half Dome offers a warmup for people who don't feel like highballing the bench wall. It is also a great break for people killing themselves working on the many difficult problems on Mortar rock proper.
Landings under Little Yosemite are for the most part rather flat, though a little bit sketchy under the left side of the rock.
From Mortar Rock proper, head left and momentarily downhill about 30 feet on the further out path. This will take you to the "entrance" of the park. Continue heading on this trail uphill another 30 feet, and it's the fifteen foot high rock that looks like half dome on the left side. Can't miss it.

This is a seriously underrated boulder. The style is much different from the main wall at Mortar, lots of sidepulls and gastons, crimps and jugs, even a sloper or two. Can get scrunchy for the big guys, but it gets you working on your balance quite a bit. Great warm ups or projects for newer climbers.
