DescriptionCold Springs Dome is one of Santa Barbara's more remote and worthwhile crags. While the area lacks in quantity of routes, it abounds in quality of climbing, interesting rock, feeling of seclusion, and abundance of shade in the summer months. Cold Springs Dome also touts the famed Makunaima, one of Santa Barbara's most famous test-pieces.
Getting TherePark at Gibraltar Rock turnoff, then hike up the ridge past Hole-in-the-Rock boulder. Once you gain the top of the ridge, find a small climber's trail to your right and head down a steep (and slippery!) trail to the crag. At the base of the crag, head down to your left and skirt the bottom of the rock to reach the majority of the climbs.
