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.

Yet another of the classic face routes on the Astro Domes, this one is memorable for a stiff runout to the first bolt as well as the steep, well-protected face climbing higher. P1) Climb about 20' of insecure 5.10 friction above the talus to a bolt, run it out again to a second bolt (this feels much easier) and continue to a ledge above which the wall steepens to vertical. Four more bolts along a bolt ladder (some clips are awkward) take you to a bolted belay. P2) Leave the belay and climb feat...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
