Rediscovery Dome Right

California > Lake Tahoe > I-80 Corridor > Bowman/Emeralds > Bowman Valley

Description

West Facing Slabby Wall. Excellent winter climbing if the road is open. Warm to hot in the summer so start early. Goes into the sun at 10 am

Getting There

Follow the directions to the bridge as provided in the "getting there" description for Bowman Valley. Continue past the bridge for approximately 1/4 mile (if you get to the 14 mile post sign you have gone about 200' too far) You will come to a road that goes left, park here. (This is a couple hundred yards up the road from top of b-word/boy scout wall parking). Go down the road from this junction 100 feet and find a cairn and a trail to the left.

[Hide Comment] The approach is directly opposite the dirt road that cuts left. Head down a gravel drainage through the trees to the crag on the right. Oct 7, 2015

my new line is called Don't speak, Just listen. 5.11+
left the country day after I put it in so I didn't get a chance to add here until today.
Did you by chance climb it?

[Hide Comment] Watch for RATTLESNAKES at this wall and its short approach. Saw three different rattlesnakes out there on saturday (6/3/17). Almost stepped on one in the trail through the trees. We had to take turns fending them off while we climbed... Jun 4, 2017

[Hide Comment] Anyone know if a hold broke on 'Middle Earth'? After completing 'Don't Speak, Just Listen' a friend ours got stuck and lowered on a burner biner on 'Middle Earth' just before the bulge crux. We went to try and finish the route to grab his biner but it felt like the bulge section was above a .10b/c, our friend who onsighted 'Don't Speak, Just Listen' felt similarly, easy to say that, "oh maybe a hold broke" to excuse just going for it but didn't really see the beta after spending collectively an hour trying to figure it out to get a safe(ish) clipping stance for the bulge.
