This well-protected face climb ascends the brown face visible in the
King Dome just under the letter "M" of "KING DOME". The first 3 bolts are spaced about 4' apart, and the crux is between the second and third bolts. A fourth bolt, located up and right, protects the upper, easier section. There are no fixed anchors for this route, so bring a few TCUs and/or sling a flake if bringing up a second.

Descent: walk off to climber's left.


4 bolts (3/8"), pro to 2" for the anchor

Myself and two others recently gave this one a shot. To no avail. I do not see it as a 5.10c and am perplexe I agree the crux is between the second and third bolt. Oh how I agree! I did "Stitch" the thing on a top rope two days back and have the moves now. But I question the current rating and think it more to be in the higher 10's. May 19, 2004

The name of this route is actually a bastardized version of "Cosmic Dance of Shiva". Feb 17, 2006

A great climb that is very well protected, but not over bolted. This is a really great and very sporty climb. This route is also very easy to TR by scrambling up the left side (although gear is needed for the anchor). Mar 6, 2017
