The Park View Dome is the furthest formation to the left in the Staunton Rocks area. The rock climbs like a granite Flatiron and offers long moderate climbing with great views.
Follow the Climber Access Trail as described on the Staunton Rocks page. From the Meadow Dome, continue to the far west end of the trail. The Park View Dome is the last dome before the trail heads south into the open meadow and back to Staunton Ranch trail.

The routes on front side would benefit from some rappel anchors. We never found any webbing on the summit. We chose to scramble to the edge of the gully, slung our ropes around a tree, and then bushwhacked down the remainder of the gully. There looks to be some potential slab routes on the wide face above the gully.
Swam around on the SE slabs today. There's some good climbing over there at an easy to moderate grade with run-out protection. Very interesting holds that keep most of the steeper headwalls at a modest grade. Just be prepared to run it out.
Went to go fo check out the new park. Super fun climbing, but had to bail after the first pitch cause of lightning. If you get there before me, it would be super cool and awesome of you if you could return my gear to me. Purple cam with green tape, nut with blue rubber and green tape, and blue sling. I think this place is great with a lot of potential.
