Description

Bali Dome is a small dome next to Java Dome. It is mostly a few shorter (by South Platte standards) routes of lower quality. It is fairly low-angle, and climbing is closer to friction. Not a destination crag by any means. Better climbs are located on its neighbor, Java Dome.

Getting There

From Denver, go W on US Hwy 285, go S (L) on Foxton Rd, this T's at the South Platte River, head E (L) to South Platte, then it curves S, go 3 mi. There is a prominent large boulder across the South Platte River just N of the parking area. Park where legal. 2 drainages can be hiked up. The N one has Atlantis slab a short way up. Choose the S drainage. Hike 20 min or so. Find this rock just past Java Dome. Scramble up and around some boulders to past the S face of Java Dome and find Bali Dome abutting the R side of Java Dome. This route is the 2nd route from the L on this slab. Start on a gravelly bench. The 1st route may be hard to see.

Descents

There is an anchor about 120' above anther anchor at about 160' off the deck. 2 ropes are useful.

The far left route seems to match Trout's description for the left-most route (Stewart Green labels it "Bali Left 5.8" in a 1997 Rock & Ice article) and I think Pee Wee's First Bolt must be the lower anchors you can see from the belay ledge to the right. The left most route felt 5.8 (though I bailed down low). Apr 8, 2010
