Great sun, great routes. If you are looking for more difficult routes, this is the place to be.
From Sunset parking lot head out like you are headed to Crab Eyes. Cross a dry creek and head up onto a plateau. Keep angling right until you see a small trail going right just before you start to ascend to Crab Eyes. Follow this trail into into some thicker woods and follow this trail to the base of Lost Dome. (Disclaimer: these aren't great directions; you may want to look at one of the guidebooks.

Just past the third bolt is the crux; move through this section to clip a fixed pin and then clip the last bolt and mantle to the chains.One of the best routes anywhere!...[more] Browse More Classics in OK

If you get lost, climb up on top of Crab Eyes (easy 4th class north route) and look to the West. You'll see the huge walls of Lost dome several hundred yards away. Go to them and follow the trail back to get it all figured out. Good Luck!
