Description [Suggest Change]

Vedauwoo Dome (pronounced “vee-duh-voo”) is to the left of the trail to Checkerboard Wall. It is an ill-defined dome, broken up into several short faces and large boulders. It affords excellent views of Checkerboard Wall but in itself is not much of a destination... yet. With a little development, this dome can offer some short approaches to a number of short routes of varying difficulties. Currently no trail exists, but the scramble up to it isn't that difficult. This dome offers the potential for a good short cragging experience that Checkerboard Wall doesn't offer.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Same parking and start of approach as Checkerboard Wall. Leave the trail in the shallow saddle to the left of the first small hill and head left. Traverse to the ill-defined gully to the right of the dome, then head up it. A non-technical way to the top of the dome can be reached by going around the rocky core of it to the right until you reach the southwest side.

This dome did not have a name as far as Charlie and I could determine. Charlie opted to dub it "Vedauwoo Dome" for the two large-cracks we climbed which reminded him of the northern climbing area. If anyone has information, please speak up. Apr 24, 2007
