Getting There

  • I do not recommend crossing the river before the very end of September.*

Park a few hundred feet above Mad Meadows, then follow the climbers path downhill/upriver to a well marked river crossing.... Just keep in mind you have to come back this way... Follow the trail back downriver to Dog Dome. A key log crossing removes all bushwacking.

Went here in late September 2016. We found a pretty good way to cross the river by boulder hopping, but one of the key rocks was only a few inches above the water, so this crossing would not have worked well earlier in the season. There are a lot of cairns in the woods on the Dog Dome side, but many of them don't seem to go anywhere. But, press on, you'll get there!

We lead the easy trad route Old Dog New Tricks, which was super clean, and then top roped some of the the 5.10 slab routes adjacent. They were super mossy, but still fun. Bring a brush if you have one!

Around the corner we checked out some other routes, but many were mossy, and Dog Nasty Dike was mossy and muddy. Again, some cleaning would go a long ways over here. Dec 24, 2016
