Routes in Way Gone Dome

Air Crack T 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b PG13

Description

A very secluded area, if you went any further east you would be in Queen Mountain area. This dome is nearly up against the side of Queen Mountain. To get an idea where it is, Way Gone Dome is parallel to The Astro Domes about 1.5 miles to the east. The rock on the dome varies from bomber granite to gravely. I could not find any anchors but there are a few good places to build one on top just bring long cordelletes.

Getting There

I approached from Wall Street Ore Mine. You will follow a boulder choked wash (meaning a lot of scrambling is involved to get here) that leads past Iguana Dome & Hook and Ladder. From Hook and Ladder you cannot see Way Gone Dome, but if you walk a few hundred yards north then turn right and head due east, picking your way over numerous rock formation and scrambling over boulders and around cactus you will eventually come to Way Gone Dome. It took me about 30 minutes of hiking from Hook & Ladder to arrive at the base of Way Gone Dome. You may also be able to approach from Red Obleisk/Disneyland Dome if you head due east from there, although I am not sure as I did not go that way. Total hike time from the parking lot is about 1 hour.
