Description

The Dome's historic ultra classic. There is mandatory excitement around the roof on the 2nd pitch (as described here) - no way to dog this one. Start near the center of the face at an obvious easy crack.

P1: Climb the crack (5.5, gear) to its top [optional belay], then friction up to join Topographical Oceans for the first three bolts of its second pitch (5.9). Veer left, then climb up and right to a belay at an arch.

P2: Climb right around the arch-roof (5.9) with courage, then follow a ramp up and left to a belay above the arch.

P3: Climb up past a bolt to an overlap, and turn it on the right (5.6) or left (5.9), and continue up left to a belay.

P4: Move left on a ramp to a wide-ish crack, climb it (5.8) to the easy summit slabs.

Downclimb to the east to descend.

Protection

Old school bolts plus a light rack.
