Description 

The Meadow Dome offers a wide variety of climbing spread across an expansive area. The rock varies from vertical faces that provide cool temperatures in the hot summer months and slabby, south-facing walls that provide great opportunities for warm climbing on sunny days when the temperatures are cool.

Getting There 

Follow the Climber Access Trail as described on the Staunton Rocks page. From there, the different sections of the dome from L->R are:

Tan Corridor
Permission Wall
Hemingway Wall
The Aerie
The Labyrinth
The Cascades Wall.

Reef On It! 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CO : South Platte : ... : Tan Corridor
Begin at a block that doesn't appear to be very attached to the wall. Don't be afraid to reef on it though, the block has proven to be quite solid. Make bouldery moves up to a good jug, and get your first clip. Some may appreciate a stick clip, but the route has been climbed numerous times without one. Continue up slightly slabby terrain for two more clips then tackle the gently overhanging headwall. Move through the crux pulling on good jugs until the angle lessens once again and you find yours...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Jimbo and I did a easy line on the right side of the Cascade Wall yesterday.

It took a fair amount of cleaning to protect in spots, I was just wondering if anyone had any beta.

Thx,

Buck
