This boulder gets its name from it's split dome of rock appearance, and the dome like roof feature. This is a smaller boulder, only about 8 feet, but it has a deep crevasse in front where the sit starts originate.
This is an exciting boulder that is first to greet you on your trip up from the road to the RBS. with the best v-0/1 boulder problem in the Boneyard you have and obvious warm up. while at the Cupola boulder, be sure to try out the awesome "cupola Press" (v-5) and "Punctilio" (v-6), or if your up for it the "Cupola Project" that has a grueling top-out... "the recruit" (V-0) is a fun way to start the day if "Robot Love" isn't your cup-o-tea....
walk to the right across the meadow from "AVP" and the Left Boneyard". as you near the rocky saddle, stay close to the road and look for the large, shallow dome of rock coming from the ground. You will now be in the "Middle Boneyard" and at the Cupola Boulder.
