DescriptionGreen Dome aka Kryptor is a nice chunk of schist out on Camino Cielo. The rock is dense, but highly fractured, and you're likely to pull off a few souvenirs if you climb there. With that said, Green Dome has a great collection of medium to hard sport routes and is rarely crowded (probably due to the length of the drive). The wall doesn't get much sun, so its prime for spring and fall, and warm winter days.
Good bolts/anchors and most of the routes are PG.
Getting ThereDrive up Gibraltar road past Gibraltar rock, and take a right at Camino Cielo. After the pavement ends, go another mile and you should see a small outcrop down below the road about 800 yards away. The sign saying "trail" means you've driven too far.
The approach is about 10 minutes and could use some clearing back.
