After leading Sword in the Stone (whose bolts are visible in the left-hand side of this photo), you will surely be left wanting more of the route's outstanding patina. It can be yours by top-roping the plumb-line beneath the anchors. This excellent face climb goes at about 5.8+ and follows a line just right of the red rope.

You can not talk about Dome Rock without referencing the many outstanding slab climbs. Here, Doug Steigerwald leads Red Mushrooms (5.10+), one of the Dome's better-protected slabs.

After having lead Red Mushrooms, Doug Steigerwald top ropes the left-hand variation (5.10c X). This quality face climb is protected by just 2 bolts for 80 feet of climbing.  <br /> <br />The orange dots mark the traditional path taken for this route. If climbing with less experienced folks, the path marked by the red dots is highly recommended. For this variation, start on the first 15 feet of the Last Dihedral and then traverse diagonally into the 2nd bolt of the the 10c. Climbed this way, the route goes at only 5.8.

They're gone!! The two small conifers that marked the end of pitch one have left the wall. The incense cedar was found lying at the base of the route. May they rest in peace.
