Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


Just left of the more popular Northeast Face is this large expanse of rock which tapers off towards the south. Half a dozen or so routes are located here but few of them see anywhere a fraction of the ascents the more popular lines elsewhere on the Astro Domes see. Primal Flake (5.9+), Strike It Rich (5.10a) and Naked Singularity (5.11c) are some of the better lines here.

Routes from left to right:

Primal Flake (5.9+)
Let's Fuck the Crack Whore (5.10a)
Hex Marks the Poot (5.8)
If You Really Loved Me, You'd Buy Me A Turkey (5.10b)
Strike It Rich (5.10b)
Strike a Bitch (5.10d)
Naked Singularity (5.11c)

Hex Marks the Poot is an incredibly obvious crack (when standing near the Don Juan boulder) on a series of blocks leaning against the South Astro Dome. It is just left of the sheer northeast face of this formation. Climb up the hand and fist crack past a horizontal rail, and then enter the off-width. Left side in, right side smearing on the face will get you up it. It's very fun but gym rats and posers will complain. Continue to a nice alcove with weird horns to sling and belay, or continue up ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
