Fairview Dome is one of the largest and steepest domes that is easily accessed from the road in Tuolumne. It is home to such classics as the Regular Route (one of Roper and Steck's picks) and Lucky Streaks, modern testpieces such as Nightshift, as well as some harder (and scarier) lines. Fairview offers steep crack systems as well as more typical face/slab climbing.
Park at the obvious pullout south of the road that is 3.5 miles from the store and 4 miles from Tenaya Lake. The trail to the dome takes about 15 minutes to hike and leaves you near the center of the Dome.

Outstanding low-angle knob climbing. Quite runout, but solid feeling. Very worth doing, especially on your way down after a larger Fairview route. P1- Wander your way up a small right-facing corner, placing a couple of small pieces, and eventually pull into the large black streak and begin climbing in a "sea of knobs", clipping one or two bolts along the way. End at a 2-bolt anchor that looks like it'll be jingus but actually has one good bolt. 5.7, 70m. P2- Continue climbing up the amazing knob...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
