Description 

Mariuolumne Dome is located just south of the popular Fairview Dome, and Lamb Dome areas. It sits on the top right corner of Drug Dome. So, when viewed from the road, it looks like one crag, split in the middle by a ledge system. The routes on Mariuolumne Dome are generally up and right a bit from the top of Drug Dome. Drug dome has some classic routes also, and they are frequently used to approach the routes on Mariuolumne Dome. One of the higher summits in Tuolumne, a pretty place to be, and some of the best granite around.


Getting There 

Park just south/west from Lamb dome, and hike straight towards Drug Dome. Climb one of those routes, or reverse the walk off by going around to the left and up to arrive at the top of Drug Dome. From here, keep traversing out to the right on the narrowing ledge system. At a point, the ledge system seems to end, and it is necessary to do some exposed 2nd class-ish moves up and right to continue to the ledge system where the classic Hobbit Book, and other routes start.

Classic left to right arete climbing on a big, cool looking block! Swivel around the arete on a good right foot knob and clip the 1st bolt. Totally rad moves up to a point near level with a half driven, flexy KB pin in a horizontal seam (upper bolt is for Stubble Face). Traverse right and past the pin (may feel like the crux) to the right arete. Go up the right side past 2 more bolts and a traversing seam (possible pro). After a couple moves right go straight up and back left to a bolt anchor (n...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
