Description

An overly popular area due to it's ease of approach. The upper parking lot routes you can literally belay from your car. The climbing is good, the rock solid, the weather often perfect, and there is water right there for those warmer days.
Stick clip for many of the first bolts is nice.
Camping can be found in the canyon with a little searching. NOT at the Dome.
Kudos to Paul Bernard and his great book "Rock Climbs of Northeast California" for a lot of the information. If you are going to spend any amount of time in the area climbing, a worthy investment.

Getting There

On Highway 70 east of Oroville. Grizzly Dome is on the right (south) side of the road as you travel east, just as you approach the second of three tunnels on the highway. A large parking lot often full of cars and climbers. The tunnel, which you DO NOT go through, is labeled 'Grizzly Dome Tunnel'.
