DescriptionThe Mega Dome is the giant rock just South of the Jackson Creek Dome . It is more of a satellite to the larger Jackson Creek Dome but deserves its own listing to avoid confusion. The North and South faces contain a handful of routes. Some are cracks and some are bolted faces. The formidable West face is very impressive but contains no routes.... It could have some potential, but it looks really hard.
Getting ThereGetting there? That is a perplexing question. I'll try to describe the approach before the chiggers and poison ivy start itching!
Basically follow the approach for Jackson Creek Dome:
-Rampart Range Road, South
-Keep right as you pass the turn off for Devil's Head.
-Take the next left on Jackson Creek road.
-After almost 4 miles, park where the road is blocked
(don't continue when the road turns hard right)
continue on foot along the old closed road/trail.
When you are directly across from the Jackson Creek Dome, hang a right and start your adventure. You can't see the Mega Dome from the road, and if you are not careful, no one will ever see you again either.... Just know that it is to the right of the Jackson Creek Dome and with some determination you will find it.
From the South face of the Jackson Creek Dome you can navigate the labyrinth of giant talus blocks to reach the base. If you are headed to the South face, you can contour across the hillside sooner to reach the right side of the Mega Dome.
