This area is home to some new climbs that have been ascended for the first time this past summer (2002.) There is currently one sport climb, known as the Lakeside Arete (5.10a), which sits high above the main Herring Dome at about 8000 feet. There is plenty of other route potential in the area, as there are several rocks that sit ready to be led both trad and sport.
Approach time:From the car: a long time, probably over an hour if you choose to traverse around Herring Dome, and from 1 - 3 hours if you climb the dome.
