Description Suggest change

The most popular concentration of routes on Buck's Bar Dome, which mostly face east to southeast.

Since the routes in the Great Flake and Great Chimney in Cottrell's guide flow continuously into the Main Area climbs, I'm including both together for now on this page.

Getting There Suggest change

From the Cosumnes River Gorge trail, follow the winding trail southeast down Dinkum Gulley, northeast around the Great Flake, north to the large flat staging area at the base of the Main Area.
