Description

Green 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 There

Drive up Gibraltar road past Gibraltar rock, and take a right at Camino Cielo. Drive until you reach the dirt road. Once the pavement ends, the dirt road is closed and gated. You can park at the gate where the paved road ends. Walk down the dirt road for about a mile, green dome will be on your left. There's a steep climbers trail down. As you approach the rock, the trail forks. If you go left you can walk up to the top of the rock to set up top ropes, or continue down to the west face. If you go right you can walk down to the east face where there are some easier routes.

The approach is about 10 minutes and could use some clearing back. Watch out for poison oak!
