Large, imposing and fairly steep with mostly excellent rock, the North Astro Dome has a dozen or so routes from 5.7 to 5.12 with the better quality lines in the 5.10 and up range. Routes range in length from one to four pitches and descent is made by rappeling from one of several sets of anchors atop the formation.
See The Astro Domes page for detailed approach information.
