Description 

One of the safest bolted areas you will find in the Meadows.

This area is about a half mile south of Medlicott Dome.

From Hwy 120, this is the lower formation seen to the right of Medlicott.

Getting There 

Park about 1/10 mile east of the Knobs.

From the parking area head away from the road eastward on a climber's trail to the obvious maintained trail (Tenaya Lake trail), turn left, hike a short distance keeping an eye to the right on the look out for a series of cairns leading across rock slabs. From here the trail is pretty well marked (at the large slab head up and left) all the way to the dome.

The new approach trail is wonderful! It used to be a sloggy mess if you got into the swamp.

Follow cairns from the main trail starting at the open, slabby region. The trail leads into the woods off the right side of these slabs and is clear, obvious & easy. Skirts to the right of the swampy region. Below the dome, at the large slab, follow cairns up and left, aiming toward the left-center of Dozier Dome.

20-25 minutes; very straightforward.

For what it's worth, I was climbing here recently and spoke with several people who missed the turn off the main trail. One couple actually ended up at Medlicott!
From the parking area head away from the road eastward on a climber's trail to the obvious maintained trail (Tenaya Lake trail), turn left, hike a short distance keeping an eye to the right on the look out for a series of cairns leading across rock slabs. From here the trail is pretty well marked (at the large slab head up and left) all the way to the dome.
