Drug Dome is a steep crag by Tuolumne standards and its north face is home to the classics Oz and Gram, as well as some terrifying (but supposedly excellent) face climbs. There has been some recent development of some very hard lines there as well.

Getting There 

The dome is obscured by the trees, but it is located just west of Fairview. Park at a small dirt pulloff on the south side of the road. A trail into the woods leads to a talus field and the first unobstructed view of the intimidating north face -- the obvious corner and roof system of OZ and Gram looms above.

This is the obvious finish to OZ, but the FA team didn't climb it until a year later. Some have said that the rock is sketchy on this climb, but overall it is quite good and this shouldn't scare anyone away. The climbing on Gram is physical whereas the climbing on OZ is more technical -- a nice contrast and finish to the route.After finishing the third pitch of OZ, continue as follows:P4: Climb up off the belay through some very powerful laybacks and underclings to a stance.
