Description

The South Face of Diarrhea Dome is a large face which despite it's size is mostly hidden from view by other formations in front of it. Home to a handful of somewhat obscure routes, which see far less traffic than the popular Grotto routes nearby, you'll likely have the place to yourself on routes like Truly Snooty Furniture (5.10a) a face to corner system, The Big Brown Eye (5.11a) cracks to face which pass a curiously shaped dark hole in the rock, Svapada (5.11b) a technical face and The Manly Dike (5.12a) which climbs an impressive dike system which crosses the face left to right.

Getting There

Standard Wonderland approach past Freak Brothers Dome and stay in the main portion of the wash until Diarrhea Dome's south face comes into view; the distinctive Owl Pinnacle is a helpful landmark. When brush blocks the wash head east in another wash which leads to an apparent impasse (see
copyright 2004 randy vogel ) which is bypassed by tunneling under or going left up and over slabs which leads into another wash heading north. When possible follow slabs on the right side of the wash up and over a small hill which will lead to the base of the dome. Plan on 45 minutes to 1 hour for the approach if all goes well.
