The little brother/sister to The Dome with the same type of Crack, Friction, and Face climbing.....just shorter.
There are multiple ways to get here, but I am only giving the most direct route from Denver. Head West on US 285 to Pine Junction then turn South towards Pine/Deckers on 126 Rd. Not too far past Pine you will come upon FR 96 where you will turn Left (East/North East). After you turn you will see the impressive Cathedral Spires area and start drooling. Continue approx. three miles to a turn out on the left. Just to the South of the turn out is the Chicken Boulder Crag and to the North are the Angle Iron Slabs. Look for the trail and start walking. Once The Little Dome becomes visible, look for a trail that heads North.

Use the bolt, but don't be fooled into starting on the face. Just keep moving along the crack till you get to the rap slings about 130' from the deck. Easy 5th class climbi...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
