Most routes are set up to be able to rappel using two 60m ropes. Some can be done with just one, but its generally a good idea to bring up two ropes on most routes.
Watch out for poison oak.
A little more beta for how to approach the two most visited parts of Cal Dome:
1) If you are climbing War of the Walls/Old Smokey area: drive over the bridge. Drive about a half mile to a mile, keeping an eye out for cement block with a metal pole on the left of the road. The trail to head up is about 10 feet before this landmark.
2) if you are climbing sands of time/silk road area: go beyond the metal pole landmark (maybe 100-300 yard more?) Look for a kerns right by the road. Follow the trail till it hits Cal Dome. Continue on the trail left to the base of Silk Road/Sands of Time.
