Description 

THA SHIZZNIT!!!!!! DON'T GO HERE!!!!!!!!


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!

Blackout (direct start) 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c A0 X  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : South Whizz Dome
This is a beautiful line with some of the best rock on the wall. Its also the easiest and "safest" of the runout routes here. Not to take anything away from Blackout but you could consider this line as an "entry-level" introduction to the other four routes Bachar put up 5 years prior. Same start as Cheatstone with the in-situ log "cheat" start (12- traverse or A0 log) and the big black streak to a slight and sloping ledge. The hardest climbing is rather well protected by good bolts with 5.10 R c...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
