Description

Close to the road/parking lot with a short 5 minute approach.
On the easier low angled face are some good beginner routes and around the far side of the dome is an overhanging face with several quality harder routes. Standout routes would include Do or Fly (5.11c), Horseshoes and Hand Grenades (5.12a) and Grenade Launcher (5.12c).

Getting There

Drive to the Permit center and park in the parking lot. Near the Southwest corner look for a trail, you can see the dome straight ahead of you.

On the second tier above puppy crack and battle of the bulge, there are quite a few routes that you can easily set up a TR for beginners. I'm not sure of any names or grades, but I'd guess about 6 routes from 5.easy - 5.9 Jul 26, 2017

Had a great introduction to granite slab climbing by YMS on top ropes from bolted anchors right of face-book and the fallen tree on the upper tier. UK grades about 6a/6b. Jul 13, 2018
