Description

Pywiak Dome is the dome just east of Tenaya Lake and really close to the road. The Dike Route is the obvious landmark, but other (excellent) climbs include Aqua Knobby, Zee Tree, and Needle Spoon.

Getting There

Park at the obvious, large dirt pullout on the south side of the road and descend steeply down and over to the base of the dome. Approach time is about 5 minutes.

Anyone have info on the route R of Zee Tree about 100' or so? It sports an old belay station at the top of P1 with 1/4" bolts, one homemade and one SMC hanger. A third bolt is present about 4 feet to the left in a chossy alcove... Jul 19, 2008

This is the descent GPS if you summit on Zee Tree or dike route or any of other summit routes.

There is a 40ft rap as you just start heading down, and just keep following the cairns to the north. Aug 24, 2015
