Description

The Park View Dome is the furthest formation to the left in the Staunton Rocks area. The rock climbs like a granite Flatiron and offers long moderate climbing with great views.

The closure on Park View Dome has been lifted.

Getting There

Follow the Climber Access Trail as described on the Staunton Rocks page. From the Meadow Dome, continue to the far west end of the trail. The Park View Dome is the last dome before the trail heads south into the open meadow and back to Staunton Ranch trail.

Descent: per Rick Blair: head toward the Ranch Hand, there is a great pine tree (25 meter) to rap off of slings. The gully appears to be down-climbable with a lot of positive holds. It is mossy, however, and when I did it, there was a downpour and serious falling rock hazard.

I did the downclimb in the gully today. The upper portion is a bit easier, then the difficulty bumps up to about 5.2. Pretty positive holds but not a jug fest. It was basically dry today. If wet, I would not downclimb it. Oct 25, 2014

Ralph has the correct descent. Head toward the Ranch Hand, there is a great pine tree to rap off of slings. The gully appears to be down climbable with a lot of positive holds. It is mossy however and when I did it, there was a downpour and serious falling rock hazard. It is about a 25 Meter rap so almost a full 60 doubled. This is very reminiscent of some of the gnarly flatiron hike outs, not great but not the worst I have seen either. Jul 27, 2014
Went to go fo check out the new park. Super fun climbing, but had to bail after the first pitch cause of lightning. If you get there before me, it would be super cool and awesome of you if you could return my gear to me. Purple cam with green tape, nut with blue rubber and green tape, and blue sling. I think this place is great with a lot of potential. Sep 5, 2013

Swam around on the SE slabs today. There's some good climbing over there at an easy to moderate grade with run-out protection. Very interesting holds that keep most of the steeper headwalls at a modest grade. Just be prepared to run it out. Aug 25, 2013

The routes on front side would benefit from some rappel anchors. We never found any webbing on the summit. We chose to scramble to the edge of the gully, slung our ropes around a tree, and then bushwhacked down the remainder of the gully. There looks to be some potential slab routes on the wide face above the gully. Jun 8, 2013
