The Northeast Face is literally packed with multi-star routes and as such is very popular with climbers throughout the season. The routes here range from 5.8+ to 5.13a (most are 5.10 and up) and vary from one to two pitches in length with mostly face climbs and the odd crack route. Descent is usually made via rappel from one of several anchors atop the formation.
See The Astro Domes page for detailed approach information.

This excellent route, one of the few at the Astro Domes that isn't all face climbing, is located on the far right side of the South Astro Dome just right of Such a Savage (5.11a R). Two vastly different and thoroughly enjoyable pitches will get you high above the desert floor, providing far reaching views of the Wonderland Of Rocks and beyond. P1) Climb a short hand/fist crack to a small ledge and then jam the somewhat awkward hand crack above (5.8) until plentiful face holds appear and lead you...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
