Lamb Dome

California > Yosemite NP > Tuolumne Meadows > Mariuolumne Area
Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

Lamb Dome is a relatively small dome located just down from and west of Drug Dome and a short distance west of Fairview. It contains a few obscure run out slab pitches and the classic "On the Lamb".

Getting There

Park on the south side of the road at the same dirt pullout used for approaching Drug Dome. This is about a mile east of Fairview. A hard-to-follow trail heads off through the woods to the southwestern foot of the dome, but finding the best way is difficult the first attempt so allow extra time.
