Lamb Dome is a relatively small dome located just down from and west of Drug Dome and a short distance west of Fairview. It contains a few obscure run out slab pitches and the classic "On the Lamb".

Getting There 

Park on the south side of the road at the same dirt pullout used for approaching Drug Dome. This is about a mile east of Fairview. A hard-to-follow trail heads off through the woods to the southwestern foot of the dome, but finding the best way is difficult the first attempt so allow extra time.

What makes it difficult is that occasionally the feet disappear. The feature appears to be an enormous horizontal dike that has split apart to form an incut crack.P1: Ascend a 5.0 low angle crack system to a nice ledge at the start of the traverse.P2: Climb off to the right at 5.4 with minimal gear to the beginning of the crack itself.
