The Domain has plenty of good routes that are well bolted and take advantage of the best features that the cliff offers. I have really enjoyed every route I have done here and never had to queue up to get on a moderate or warm up. Grading is stiffer than some other areas of the Red, but the grades are not sandbags. You earn your ticks here. Jun 4, 2018
