This is the prominent dome 3/10 of a mile east of the Tuolumne Meadows Store. It offers good climbing and easy access. The West Face is a short walk from the parking lot. "The Water Cracks", "Werner's Wiggle", "Truckin' Drive" and "Rawl Drive" are a few good routes on this face. The Northwest Face has longer routes and the classic "Crying Time Again". The East Face is a longer walk to a number of short, poorly protected routes and top ropes.
Park in the lot at the base of the West Face. For complete information, get "Rock Climbing Tuolumne Meadows" by Don Reid and Chris Falkenstein
