Not sure exactly what the climbing is like or even what routes exist, I would assume it's similar rock to the BRCM which is just across the river. I am adding this so that hopefully some info about the routes that have already gone up can be added.
Metberry Gulch, I would think, most likely the same as for BRCM.

On 10/10/81, I led Steve Sarns up the north-facing chimney/crack on the big summit block of Tick Dome. We called this summit block the "Sheep's Foot," in keeping with the long-established geographical theme in the area (e.g., Sheep Rock and Sheep's Nose).

Do you have any other information about other lines that have been done?
I heard the Petes climbed it back in the day. I see a fair amount of potential for natural lines, and I would find it pretty hard to believe that they haven't been climbed if not at least attempted. Seems no one cares to claim their line.

Approach is easier from FR 211. Both crack routes in the center of Tick Dome go at 5.9. Theres also a 5.8 crack to the right of the main face I did years ago although I probably wasnt the first. Bob D'antonio and Richard Aschert established two 5.12 routes on the left side of the crag near the water streaks. Lightly referred to here; supertopo.com/climbing/thread....
