Description

Solitude and well-bolted sport climbs on highly featured, golden granite characterize this group of walls, domes, and spires.

Getting There

North of Kernville, the Sherman Pass road intersects Rt 155 (?) before it veers left towards Johnsondale. Several miles to the east of the intersection, Cherry Hill Road intersects Sherman Pass Road. Take Cherry Hill road south, past Big Meadow, following signs for Taylor Meadow until you see a sign demarcating Taylor Creek from Taylor Meadow. This will be a left turn. Follow the road to its end, where a logging road branches off uphill to the right. High-clearance vehicles can follow this logging road for another mile to within sight of the Domes and good camping; others will want to park at the road's end and pack their stuff in. From the logging road, the Domes are about 30 minutes' hiking, well-cairned.

The road is likely to be impassable after the first big snow each winter.
