Description

The Lenticular Dome is a good looking piece of rock (as far as rocks go). Far and away the most sought-after route here is Mental Physics, which has been called the best 5.7 in the country. While I can't attest to that, it sure is a lot of fun! While you're waiting in line for Mental Physics, try Dazed And Confused, a 5.9 (R-) bolted face just a few feet to the left.

Getting There

Approach from Barker Dam - scramble through the wash north.

Alternative: Park at wall street mill trail and walk through the wash through wonderland. This is flatter and less scrambling than barker dam.

Budget about 45mins-1hr for the approach.
