Description

Mariuolumne Dome is located just southwest of the popular Fairview Dome, and Lamb Dome areas. It sits on the top right corner of Drug Dome. So, when viewed from the road, it looks like one crag, split in the middle by a ledge system. The routes on Mariuolumne Dome are generally up and right a bit from the top of Drug Dome. Drug dome has some classic routes also, and they are frequently used to approach the routes on Mariuolumne Dome. One of the higher summits in Tuolumne, a pretty place to be, and some of the best granite around.

Getting There

Park just south/west from Lamb dome, and hike straight towards Drug Dome. Climb one of those routes, or reverse the walk off by going around to the left and up to arrive at the top of Drug Dome. From here, keep traversing out to the right on the narrowing ledge system. At a point, the ledge system seems to end, and it is necessary to do some exposed 2nd class-ish moves up and right to continue to the ledge system where the classic Hobbit Book, and other routes start.
