Getting There 

The backsides of these domes are obvious from any formation on the east side of the HWY 120, i.e. Drug Dome. My best suggestion is to find the pond from the middle of the mentioned paved pullout (guidebook). Watch out for the mud bogs. Take a straight line through the woods perpendicular to the Hwy and slightly up rolling hills and sometimes thick forest. One trick is to keep looking back to make sure Mariuolumne Dome is always behind your back. Depending on which trail you pick up you will either find the North or South dome first. Good luck!

P1. I would have to disagree with the topo as far as where the crux is. I felt the true crux was at about 20 feet with its flared thin hands, rattly fingies and polished layback. Its a little hard/pumpy to pro. Skip the obvious bolted anchor (its a good shake-out) and continue through a second crux of 10+ and cool stemming and finger locks. (These ratings apply to 6' male...Switch the crux sections around if you are shorter and have small hands). At the top of the corner/roof, make a short, cool...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
