Description

Sitting on the east side of the ridge, towards the southern end of it, sit a group of tall and ultra high quality domes that surround Shuteye Creek. Here lies the highest concentration of “Eagle” domes. 

Getting There

From the town of North Fork, drive ~30 miles on Minarets (aka Mammoth Pool) road. A few miles after passing Mile High Vista, take a left on dirt road 6s66. There is a a big sign that marks this road and points to the Shuteye Pass Trail. After about a mile, pass the easy to miss trailhead to said pass and keep going maybe another mile. You will reach a fork. The trailhead to most of the domes in the area is at the end of the left fork. You can park at the fork and walk the rest of the way as the road gets kinda rowdy here. The end of the right fork provides a nice camp spot (as well as the end of the left).

2018 conditions: The road leading to the fork was definitely doable in a regular old 2wd lowrider a few years ago. Now it's quite a bit rougher but still probably doable. It was smooth sailing in an Outback, for instance.  If you can get past an initial rocky section, then you're good to go for a while. You will have to straddle some gigantic ruts though, be careful. If you can't make it to the fork, you should be able to get at least within 1/2 mile of it.
