Description

This large dome is the most striking feature of the Moonlight Crags. It is 200 feet tall, and has surprisingly moderate routes for the overall steepness.

It is possible to TR solo the entire formation with a single 70m rope.

Getting There

The hike is approximately 0.7 miles from the parking area (relatively flat and easy). Once you are on the ridge top continue hiking until the ridge drops away and you can see the crag looming below you. The two best options for approaching this crag are to either hike down the loose gulley on the north side of the formation (closest to the parking lot) or to scramble up the backside of the formation and do two rappels from the top. If rappelling, there is some easy (but exposed) third class down climbing to reach the nearest set of anchors, which are barely visible and are roughly thirty feet down from the scree covered ledges.
