Description [Suggest Change]
The East face of Stairway to Heaven Dome is found at the east side of the Main Area. The crux comes at end of pitch one, pinching small nipples on a steep face with very thin feet. The second pitch difficulties come after traversing left to the finishing dike: reachy and good holds.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolts, supplemented by small pro for pitch one, and bolts for pitch two. Rap the route with a single 70m rope. The anchors at the very top need to be lowered a couple feet to make the pull easier.
