The Lambada Dome is the second formation in the Little Egypt triumvirate. It faces west and will be a scorcher in the summer, but will stay in the shade until about 11:00am. This dome is less traveled than the Frontier and features a little more face climbing than cracks. The classic line on the wall is Slab Hymen, a must do.
Pass the Frontier on the left side of the crag and follow a faint trail east then south between the domes. Continue to hike south until you can move back east toward the Lambada dome at about the high point on the dome. A short steep trail will deposit you at the base of the routes. Total time to this dome is about 30 minutes from the parking area.

This route might be the best on the crag and a must do. The opening crux will immediately test your friction skills. If you can stick the opening sequence, you have it made... as long as you are comfortable with some healthy runouts on 5.7 ground. Good edges lead all the way to the top with a nice mini-crux right before the anchors. The second pitch is not as good as the first, but you are here already... might as well do it....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
