Description 

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.


Getting There 

Park in the lot at the base of the West Face.

Crying Time Again 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : Northwest Face
Awesome moderate knob pulling. Even though this climb has bolts I would not consider it a sport climb. The bolts can be almost impossible to see at times even if they are five feet in front of you. The last pitch has several different options. 5.9 R or 10a safely bolted. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
