Trapper Dome, Courtright Reservoir

Description 

Trapper Dome has a high density of climbs ranging from 5.4 to 5.12 (or higher) and is only 10 minutes from the road. Due to its rock quality, ease of access, climb density, and range of grades; this is one of the few areas at Courtright where you might actually run into other people. The dome offers bolted slab routes and high quality cracks. There are also several multi-pitch (2 or 3 pitch)climbs for those interested in a little more adventure.


Getting There 

Just before you reach Trapper Springs Campground on the west side of the lake, you'll see several pull outs that can accommodate 1 or 2 cars. Park your car and head up hill to the west toward the left (south) side of the dome. The first climbs are about 10 minutes from the road. This dome is an easy walk if you happen to be staying in the campground.

A Brief History of 'Carson-Kodas'....In July 1987, when they put up this route, Ron Carson and Vaino Kodas were two of the best and boldest climbers in the area.
