Description

Lake of the Domes Dome

Rising from Lake of the Domes, this is home to a selection of fine sport routes.  This is a stellar modern crag climbing awesome knobs 50 feet away from a beautiful alpine lake.  It's pretty all-time.

One of the best knob sport crags in Tuolumne?  You be the judge.

Getting There

1) Approach by way of Drug Dome. From the base of Drug Dome, skirt the base of Mariuolomne Dome up the hill and to the South. Be mindful of vegetation and keep to the trail as much as possible. Scramble up the gully to Lake of the Domes. .85 miles and a thousand feet of elevation gain.
2) Cathedral Lakes Fisherman's Trail. Up and around the South side of Medlicott. The longest but easiest approach.
3) Climb a route that tops out Medlicott! Options include Shagadelic, The Yawn, Bachar/Yerian, etc.
