Getting weather forecast...
Bart Dome is one of the most awesome pieces of granite in the Southern Sierras. It is about 800 feet high, and covered with dikes, water grooves, and some of the most climbable rock anywhere. The rock is very featured, off vertical in most cases, and all the routes are 5.8 to 5.10 with few exceptions. The fews are awesome too, and Bart Dome is guarded with about a 7 mile approach, so I would imagine the formation see few visitors. It is south facing and can get quite warm, but often there is a breeze which can help out. There is a small stream for water about 1/4 mile before the dome, but it can be dry, especially in late season. Water can be had at the north end of Manter Meadow , especially in early season. Bring a water filter. There are 16 routes listed on Bart Dome in the Domelands guidebook, and probably a few more done since then.
From Big Meadow Trailhead off of Cherry Hill Rd., hike east about 3 miles to Manter Meadow. Hike north up Manter Meadow for a few miles until the trail splits; left (34E08)to Woodpecker Meadow and right (34E10) into Tibbets Creek and Rockhouse Basin. Soon you can see Bart Dome down and to the right.
