Description 

Close to the road/parking lot with a short 5 minute approach.
On the easier low angled face are some good beginner routes and around the far side of the dome is an overhanging face with several quality harder routes. Standout routes would include Do or Fly (5.11c), Horseshoes and Hand Grenades (5.12a) and Grenade Launcher (5.12c).

Getting There 

Drive to the Permit center and park in the parking lot. Near the Southwest corner look for a trail, you can see the dome straight ahead of you.

Do or Fly on Puppy Dome.

Do or Fly 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : Puppy Dome
A right leaning crack to a roof.The crux comes right off the ground, a flaring hand crack with lieback moves to establish yourself in a better section of 5.10 hands, a long sustained series of moves before the crack narrow down to a finger crack and a 5.11a roof. There is a back breaking boulder/flake directly below the start of the route, I recommend you be solid at the grade....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
