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.

The crux is a section of 5.11A slab that's a little run out, but over a shiny, retrofitted bolt. You should link the 5.8 and 5.9 runout pitches because there's really isn't any protection, save for a couple quarter inch rusty bolts and occassional pro so it's easy to link them. All the other pitches are pretty well protected but you should be comfortable running it out over easier terrain....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
