Although seldom visited the backside of the popular North Astro Dome can be a good spot to escape the crowds and climb in warmth when the other side is too cold or crowded. The climbing here is characterized by steep slab climbing on fairly good quality tan rock. Lead Us Not Into Temptation (5.9), Chute to Kill (5.10c) and Life's a Pitch (5.12a) are amongst the better lines here.
Starting from the base of North Astro Dome - Northeast Face circle right around the north side of the dome over increasingly rocky terrain until you can chimney/stem up a prominent rocky gully (4th class/easy 5th) to reach the base of this wall.

This route will test your faith in the J-Tree stone! Very delicate thin edging starts the route off with a crux section between the 3rd and 5th bolts. The start could be considered the 10c section depending on height. A fun route to top-rope as well after climbing Lead Us Not Into Temptation (5.9). The best decent is to rap off the Lead Us Not Into Temptation anchors. Enjoy!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
