Westworld Dome is a huge granite dome in the West Stronghold. From the end of Forest Road 687, it is the dominant feature on the right hand side of the left drainage. This 600' rock holds several good lines, including the classic Warpaint.
From the popular parking and camping area at the end of Forest Road 687 there are a mess of trails. Some of them lead to the East Stronghold. Instead of these, find a trail which takes you North from the end of the road, in the leftmost of the two drainages. Follow this for 30 minutes (perhaps 2 miles) to a big old Cypress tree, from where cairns lead up and right to the dome. The trail here is faint and brushy in spots, but if you keep your eye on the dome, you'll make it there eventually, even if you depart from the trail.This dome is further up the drainage and across from the more popular Whale Dome.

This route was the best Christmas present I ever got.Imagine climbing a steep sunny granite slab on near-perfect rock for almost 700 feet of edging and smearing. Imagine being surrounded by a sea of granite domes and trees in 65 degree weather in the middle of winter. Imagine watching Cotimundi's eating berries while approaching the base of the route and then rapping off in a beautiful Southwest desert sunset. Imagine all of that, or maybe just go climb this route and experience it instead.Find ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
