The Cottage Domes are the next domes to the northeast of DAFF. East Cottage Dome is the most popular and offers splendid, steep knob climbing.

Getting There

Park in a dirt pullout 2.7 miles west of Tuolumne store. (the GPS coords are a guess based on this description, please submit a correction if you know the actual spot).

Hike up and slightly left, past a creek bed, then up some slabs to the southwest summit of East Cottage Dome.

Go right, stay high on the slabs below the summit. Traverse around to the face.
