Description

Summit Dome is a great wall to arrive at after climbing many of the multi-pitch climbs at the "Monitor". If viewing from the car parking, up the ridge called the nose, you will see 2 distinct domes on the way to the summit. The first dome hosts the obvious pair of parallel cracks leading up to the SUMMIT DOME. Here you'll find 5 new 100' pitches! If you climb the 600' [Trooper Traverse] up to the saddle, you'll arrive at the base of the SUMMIT DOME.

A. The Gusty Prow (Trooper Traverse extension...), 10-, 1p, 100', gear & bolts.
B. Seams Like Lightning, 11, 1p, 100', gear & bolts.

In September of 2011, Justin Day and I added 2 more routes up on the SUMMIT DOME. UTTERLY THIN, 5.12?, climbs the cracks, seams and face features between SEAMS... and WAVES.... And then, to right of WAVES... PERFECT WEATHER, 5.10a, climbs the obvious crack that disappears then steps up and right to the next crack to finish. Sep 12, 2012
