Description 

This is the side of Trapper Dome that is readily seen the dam area. It is highlighted by a striking arete on the left end. The closer one travels to Trapper Dome the more obscure it becomes due to the forest. The South Face hosts some really incredible face climbing with a few cracks thrown in for good measure.

Getting There 

Park in one of the turn-outs mostly found on the right side of the road and head towards the granite. Takes anywhere from 2-4 minutes depending on the turnout. No real trail per se.

Scamper directly up the leaning block to a ledge with no gear. Easy but don't blow it. 4 bolts gets you to a roof. Turn the right-facing corner and climb the dihedral. Two more bolts gets you to the glue-in anchor. Deck potential exists if you blow the first, second, and possibly third clip, be aware....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
