  • Description 

    Start on NW Face of the Dome, at the right=facing corner. There are two variations: 10a and 5.8+.

    P1: Either climb the slanting, right-facing dihedral with tough pro (10a) or climb the flaky, blocky 5.8+ to the right of the dihedral. They end at the same stance.

    P2: Traverse left 25 feet. You can link this with the last pitch. Belay at the base of a wide crack (5.9).

    P3: Gain the wide crack and follow the disappearing crack system to a yellow, right-facing corner, continue up another wide crack to a ledge with four trees (5.8).

    P4: Climb the left, sloping, dihedral undercling, then follow a ramp right to another ledge (5.9).

    P5: Follow cracks to top (5.6).


    Protection 

    Standard rack to 4". A 5" piece is nice for the wide crack, but not required.
