BETA PHOTO: Dali Dome
Dali Dome offers the easiest approach of any of the crags at Christmas Tree Pass. The rock quality is very good, but not exactly clean due to lack of climbing activity.
Dali Dome was first developed in the '70s and features many fine and challenging slab climbs, as well as an excellent crack route. There is an ongoing effort to replace the 30 year old 1/4"ers on these routes but many remain: bring screamers.
While these routes are bolted, they are not sport routes. Be prepared for runouts.
From the intersection of Nevada 163 and signed Christmas Tree Pass road, drive north 6.4 miles to a small turnout on the left. Park here and follow the old road to the base of Dali Dome.

Two bolts protect at stances (old Rawl buttonheads with thin SMC hangers in need of replacement). Move up, then right, then up and finally turn the low ang...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
