Description

Fairview Dome is one of the largest and steepest domes that is easily accessed from the road in Tuolumne. It is home to such classics as the Regular Route (one of Roper and Steck's picks) and Lucky Streaks, modern testpieces such as Nightshift, as well as some harder (and scarier) lines. Fairview offers steep crack systems as well as more typical face/slab climbing.

Getting There

Park at the obvious pullout south of the road that is 3.5 miles from the store and 4 miles from Tenaya Lake. The trail to the dome takes about 15 minutes to hike and leaves you near the center of the Dome.

Once you finish your route of choice, the obvious descent heads south down easy slabs to terra firma. One then walks back along the base of the dome to packs/trail. Allow about 30-45 mintues.

Amazing climb. The first few pitches were still a bit wet even in late August... but don't let this stop you from climbing this route. We didn't have the topo for this route when we climbed it and ended up missing the cresent ledge and climbed through some 5.10 ish roofs to the left. This made the climb a bit more interestion but I wouldnt sudgest it with some of the flakes being quite hollow. Sep 29, 2010

I don't know how many times I had read about this climb in "50 Classic Climbs" before I finally got to do it. That wet 1st pitch haunted me. In reality the biggest challange is getting there first in the morning and avoiding the crowds. We did just that and had the climb all to ourselves. I really enjoyed the beautiful rock quality, the views and the beautiful sunny day. Aug 21, 2006
