Description [Suggest Change]

This is the prominent dome a quarter mile east of the Tuolumne Meadows Store. It offers good climbing and easy access.

The West Face is a short walk from the parking lot. "The Water Cracks", "Werner's Wiggle", "Truckin' Drive" and "Rawl Drive" are a few good routes on this face.

The Northwest Face has longer routes and the classic "Crying Time Again".

The East Face is a longer walk to a number of short, poorly protected routes and top ropes.
