Description

Dali Dome offers the easiest approach of any of the crags at Christmas Tree Pass. The rock quality is very good, but not exactly clean due to lack of climbing activity.

Dali Dome was first developed in the '70s and features many fine and challenging slab climbs, as well as an excellent crack route. There is an ongoing effort to replace the 30 year old 1/4"ers on these routes but many remain: bring screamers.

While these routes are bolted, they are not sport routes. Be prepared for runouts.

Getting There

From the intersection of Nevada 163 and signed Christmas Tree Pass road, drive north 6.4 miles to a small turnout on the left. Park here and follow the old road to the base of Dali Dome.

Reply to Sam Elander:

The approach is fairly well described on this page, plus the GPS position is marked on the mapping section of this page. The road and trail are pretty clearly visible on the satellite imagery. When you are out there, Dali Dome is pretty easy to find especially if you have a photo of it. Just drive as close as you can and hike toward it, the feature is in plain sight.

The descent for several of the routes entails rapping or lowering from bolted anchors because the a lot of the routes are single pitch and only climb about half way up the crag. If you do make it up to the summit, there is a description of the descent written by Brian in SLC on the Wilkinson Sword route page. Dec 2, 2018
