  • Description 

    A great combination of boulder problem (5.11 start) into a small alcove and then crack that fades away to face climbing near the top. Boulder the start, lay back the crack using your fingers and place pro quickly. Once high enough, clip the bolts and face climb on thin friction climbing as the route turns less steep.


    First route on the South Face of Lost Dome. Just left around the corner from For a Rocker.


    Three quick draws for the three bolts up high, nuts, and cams to 2 inches. Use the belay Anchor of For a Rocker to double rap down.

    There are three bolts up high not two so bring three draws not two.

    Great Route! Boulder start, gear placements, clip bolts, slabby top out; bomber, sharp rock. Solid line. Watch out for the tree branch getting caught on your chalk bag though....
