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.

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.

Per Bill Lawry: descent - there is another option: near the top, traverse climber’s right as needed to gain the back side of The Ranch Hand, then follow nice descent path that is skier’s left of The Ranch Hand.
