Description

Although seldom visited the backside of the popular North Astro Dome can be a good spot to escape the crowds and climb in warmth when the other side is too cold or crowded. The climbing here is characterized by steep slab climbing on fairly good quality tan rock. Lead Us Not Into Temptation (5.9), Chute to Kill (5.10c) and Life's a Pitch (5.12a) are amongst the better lines here.

Routes from left to right:

Let Your Freak Flag Fly (5.7)

Godsend (5.10b TR)
Life's a Pitch (5.12a)
Chute to Kill (5.10c)

Getting There

Starting from the base of North Astro Dome - Northeast Face circle right around the north side of the dome over increasingly rocky terrain until you can chimney/stem up a prominent rocky gully (4th class/easy 5th) to reach the base of this wall.
