Currently under rehab, this wall will provide some safer cragging with modern anchors and fewer mega-runouts (not that there is anything wrong with a few good runouts!).
Per Drew Spaulding: This is the most easily accessed crag in 10-Mile Canyon. The rock quality is superb, and there are some high quality routes to be climbed! Its southern exposure offers excellent opportunity to climb in the spring, summer, and fall (unless choked with snow...). There are many facets and many different variations to climb. There are mostly low-angled moderates, but there are also a few steep climbs too....
Eds. note, this is a combination of submissions. This crag has been called Sunshine Dome and Ding Dong Dome as well. Griz's entry was actually from August 2012 and was incorrectly deleted. My bad, LP.

Per Drew Spaulding: Driving west on I-70, 1/4 mile past the "Main Street" exit at Frisco, The Dome is the 1st major crag just above the highway. Pull off the highway and park in the tall grass just below the Dome. The Dome sits down and left of the Witchita Wall. A quick 1-2 minute approach up the trail brings you to the base.
