Description 

Freshman Mountain is the smallest of the three domes and sits midway between the Main Dome and Buzzards Roost. Like the Little Dome areas, Freshman Mountain does not see a lot of traffic (climbers or hikers). There are four climbing areas on the dome itself, all found on its southern and eastern sides. The Rock Clark Wall and South American Boulders are both located on the dome’s southern flanks. The Yellow Pages and Mirage Wall are on the eastern side. Also like the Little Dome areas, these climbs are all short, single pitch routes with the only bolted lines located in the South American Boulders. The South American Crack (5.8+) is the area’s premiere climb.


Getting There 

The easiest way to the Freshman Mountain climbing areas is via the Loop Trail or Sandy Creek. Follow the trail or creek east until you reach the large group pavilion. From here, turn left and follow the Turkey Pass trail past the Frog Pond and Turkey Peak into the pass. The flanks of Freshman Mountain will be on your right. Scramble up the slabs and traverse around the south side to reach Rock Clark and the South American Boulders. Continue around the dome to reach the Yellow Pages and Mirage Wall.
