The southwest face of Hammer Dome is tucked down along Cathedral Creek. Steep knobby face climbing with a mix of hard traditional routes and a few hard sport routes. Routes are single pitch or sometimes have a short second pitch.

This is a quiet place with the classic route Shadow of a Doubt.

Mosquito repellent can be handy.

Getting There 

Hammer Dome is along Cathedral Creek, about 1.5 miles downstream from Daff Dome past the approach to Dark Side Dome. Park at the lower Daff Dome parking area near the creek. From the parking area, hike northwest down the short hill to the creek. Cross the creek and follow a very faint trail along the north side of the creek west. About 15 minutes past the very obvious River Wall continue along the creek to Hammer Dome. Approach time is about 30-40 minutes and very enjoyable.

Shadow of a Doubt is a classic and excellent Tuolumne knob face climb with steep climbing on larger, kind of spread out knobs where getting from one to the next is super stimulating. Lots of great aesthetic moves.Look for a wide crack in a short right facing corner/ramp leading to an obvious beautiful line of knobs for the start....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
