Huge dome with some moderate multipitch climbing. The Dome is easily identified by the large double roof system on the south face(approximately perpindicular to the trail). The west/southwest face is a chickenhead dotted 4th/5th class slab that can be easily soloed to get down from the top. An easier but longer walkoff may exist to the northwest.

Getting There 

About 1/2 to 3/4 the way to the Rockfellow group off of the right(north/east) side of the main trail. Once you are almost below the large double roof system, just walk across the slab to the base of the southeast side of the dome.
