Description

Not sure exactly what the climbing is like or even what routes exist, I would assume it's similar rock to the BRCM which is just across the river. I am adding this so that hopefully some info about the routes that have already gone up can be added.

Getting There

Metberry Gulch, I would think, most likely the same as for BRCM.

Approach is easier from FR 211. Both crack routes in the center of Tick Dome go at 5.9. There’s also a 5.8 crack to the right of the main face I did years ago although I probably wasn’t the first. Bob D'antonio and Richard Aschert established two 5.12 routes on the left side of the crag near the water streaks. Lightly referred to here; supertopo.com/climbing/thre… Aug 18, 2009

Do you have any other information about other lines that have been done?

I heard the Petes climbed it back in the day. I see a fair amount of potential for natural lines, and I would find it pretty hard to believe that they haven't been climbed if not at least attempted. Seems no one cares to claim their line. Aug 20, 2008
