DescriptionThis is the big dome, south of the Mokelumne River. Its 1,500' face offers a variety of routes.
Descend by rappel or walking west, between Calaveras and Hidden Domes.
Watch out for poison oak.
Getting ThereThe approach is obvious, but...
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.
