Description 

Pywiak Dome is the dome just east of Tenaya Lake and really close to the road. The Dike Route is the obvious landmark, but other (excellent) climbs include Aqua Knobby, Zee Tree, and Needle Spoon.

Getting There 

Park at the obvious, large dirt pullout on the south side of the road and descend steeply down and over to the base of the dome. Approach time is about 5 minutes.

Very technical and thin face climbing following a seam. The hardest moves are down low but it is possible to fall off of just about any move if you don't stay focused. Starts out less steep with delicate moves to gain the seam then some sidepull moves and onto knobs and edges. Surprisingly pumpy for what is more or less a vertical routes....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
