Description 

The Duty Dome Area is home to a number of significant crags, including Duty Dome, Warrior Wall, Fish Wall, Keen Acres, and Peekaboo Tower. These crags are located on the north side of Icicle Creek Canyon, and get lots of sun. The Duty Dome area is located between Givler's Dome and Icicle Buttress. Duty dome can be readily identified by the route Heart of Gold, an obvious white streak on the left side of the dome. Many of the bolted routes in the Duty Dome area are mixed lines that require some supplemental gear.

Getting There 

Drive west up Icicle Creek ~6.3 miles. Park on the south side of the road and look for a trail heading up about 200 yards before the base of Icicle Buttress. A large boulder on the roadbank helps identify the start of the trail. The first crags are reached after ~15 minutes walk.

CONDITION REPORT 
I'm hoping someone found a Olympus TG-3 camera at the base of Duty Dome. It would've been found on Saturday 8/30 climbers right of Straight Street under the bolted 5.7. If you've found it please email me at cfroman@gmail.com
