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.
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.

The other pitches are easier, but still very sparsely protected.P1: Climb a long gradually steepening slab to a bolted anchor at a stance on the dike. This st...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
