DescriptionPenstemon Dome has a variety of bolted and traditionally protected routes from 5.5 to 5.12. The clean rock, height of the dome, and variety of grades; make this dome a "mandatory" destination for those visiting Courtright.
Getting ThereFrom the Maxon Parking lot, head down the 4WD trail until you see the creek on your right. Follow the creek upstream a few minutes then cross over and head uphill toward the southwest face of the dome. You can orient yourself by a large evergreen (pine?) tree that is directly in front of the dome. Most of the climbing routes are accessed by climbing the short 5.8 crack that is to the left of the tree. Access to the dome takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
