Description 

Beautiful golden granite bouldering only a few minutes from the campground. Few crowds. Techy problems. Mixed sun and shade. Crank down here and then head over the hill to the more popular Puppy Boulders, or vice versa.

Getting There 

From the campground, take the JMT east for a pleasant 5-10 minute walk towards Lyell Canyon, until you are directly across the river from Kitty Dome. Cross the river at some beautiful golden slabs, in late season the water is only a few inches deep. Head towards Kitty Dome, the boulders are scattered around the south face.

Golden Rastafarian V3 6A  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : Kitty Boulders
This problem is remarkably similar to the White Rasta in Joshua Tree in both difficulty and style of moves, but it is not nearly as scary. Start standing on the left side of the arete and make powerful and technical layaway moves up the arete until it is possible to grab the top of the boulder at about 15'. Mantel over with some difficulty. The crux of this one is getting off the ground but it is exciting all the way through the mantel....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
