|King Dome - East Face
The majority of climbs on King Dome are on the east face, which is the one visible on the approach from Hall Of Horrors. This climb lies in the center of the east face on a small block situated just in front of the main wall.
Scramble up easy face to reach a hand crack over a small roof and continue up the crack above to finish. Short and sweet.
A fun little route (25') that is easily led or bouldered depending on one's inclination.
A few pieces to 2.5"

One of them damn short-person climbs! I think I used a #2 camalot and about an 8 or 9 hex; small to medium for an anchor. The consensus among our group was that the climb was burly enough to be .10a. Although I haven't done it, others said Hobbit Roof involves less strength. Walk-off straight back between two boulders and down a squeeze chimney.

The first 10' of face climbing involves delicate edging with no pro. A crash pad and/or spotter is a good idea.

easier face climbing down low than Hobbit Roof. The crack/roof sections on both seem pretty comparable...totally locker.
