Description 

This area has newer routes on a feldspar quartz dome close to Forest Road 100 (Buffalo Park Road). These are mostly sport routes with a few trad, sport, and mixed lines waiting for first ascents. All routes crimp, pinch, or stem their way up quartz nubbins, with the occasional dark inclusion or light colored intrusion. As with all new routes on this type of rock, watch for the random nubbin popping off. Be aware that this dome, as well as the main Rose Dome, sit in a burned-out forest... trees sometimes topple during periods of high winds. All but one route are on the west face of the formation, and they receive plenty of afternoon sun.


Getting There 

Drive out of Steamboat to the top of Rabbit Ears Pass. As you are nearing the east summit, look for Forest Road 100 (or Buffalo Park Road) on the right. Continue on this well maintained gravel road for 8.7 miles. You will Come around a right hand bend and both Rose Domes will be directly in front of you. The one on the right, north, is the "Other Rose Dome". Park on the left in a pullout/primitive hunters' campsite. Approach by crossing the road and picking up a trail immediately past a yellow left hand turn sign. This "trail" is marked with blue survey tape and lined (somewhat) with logs the entire way. Within the first few minutes, you will walk across a large log laying over a moist grassy area. From there, follow a flat, shallow ridge all the way to the dome. It is approximately 10-15 minutes.

This is the best route on the dome (so far). Climb a vertical section of a dike featur with crimpy nubbin fun above and below. Pulling on the dike feature offers something different than the typical nubbin crimping here....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
