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.

This route takes a nice line to the left of the Great Pumpkin. It is a quasi "old school" route designed for the leader who has their lid screwed on pretty tight. There are some lengthy runouts on easy ground and a spot of routefinding thrown in for good measure. The knobs are dandy and the polish is mirrorlike. It is said this route is a better version of the Great Pumpkin. Maybe give this one a try instead of standing in line over at the Pumpkin.Pitch #1: Motor up the easy corner an...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
