Getting There 

From the Freak Brothers area, head east past the Red Obelisk. After a few minutes, head slightly left (NE) through a broad open area. You will pass the south face of a large varnished boulder with a steep bolted project. (This boulder lies immediately south of Bighorn Dome). Continue east in a wash with some boulders, and follow a trail around to the north face of Bighorn Dome.
